[Boston—Wednesday, 16 June 1875]

June. 16. 1875. This is a fitting time to begin again the old diary. The first overtures to a real reconciliation between the north and the south have been made by the latter. Today three Southern regiments have arrived in Boston to help us keep the Centennial Celebration of the battle of Bunker’s hill. One came from Maryland (state), one from Baltimore, one company from South Carolina, Charleston. The latter to be sure contains only 48 men, but it is the fact rather than the numbers which is impressive.
