Jan. [January] 7 – It is rumored [rumoured] that we are all to be
let out in a few days; but this we have heard so often
that we have little faith. Business is dead outside and
no money in circulation. We hear the rebels have bought
or taken Caldwell’s printing press and started a paper
called the “New Nation.” We had the reading of the first
number smuggled in to us. It is anything but friendly
to Canada.
