SUNDAY, Oct. 16, 1864
A quiet day. No invitations, for which I heartily console myself. An hour spent in humble devotions at St. Patrick’s Cathedral,—a visit to the historic monument to Wolfe and Montcalm, in the Governor’s garden,—a walk on the Esplanade,—a cursory view of some of the great battlefields of the last century; and a return to my quiet room in the Hotel for the remainder of the evening, to think and dream about home, and all its endearing associations. The above noticed and other objects of interest about Quebec, will be more particularly referred to hereafter.
