[[underlined]]April 4, 1892 [[/underlined]]

Left Washington at 4 P.M. crossed the old Long Bridge and reached Richmond a little after dark, no secial change noted in character of country or flora. Hilly and woods when not cleared. Pinus inops is most common. Sycamores & oaks & hicora & Tulip trees along streams.

Some good farms, mostly poor shanties & delapitated places. 

A very warm day.

[[underlined]] April 5. [[/underlined]] Got daylight as we reached Chadburn, N.C. All pine woods with little clearings & log houses, level country sandy soil, some places of thick underbrush, swamps & flooded places some beautiful open woods.

A long leaved pine & one with shorter leaves are in about equil abundance. Saw a little Spanish Moss and after passing Marion it became abundant. People were making tar near Marion.

The few Junipers seen were all along fences or yards and may have been brought. Saw the first Cypress just north of Lanes. Phosphate works and bear about Charleston.
