19Sep1861, Taken Into Custody

HAGLEY, Thursday, September 19th, 1861.
—The horrid business of Henriette's being taken into custody took place, Mr. Marcy coming over about it. She showed strangely little feeling ; some loud crying, but did not beg off or defend herself, or say she was sorry. Went away with the policeman very quietly, tho' rather red in the face. But my spirits are low, thinking of her loneliness and disgrace to-night.
