On the 3rd September I called the roll at our house and we boarded a topless phaeton behind a fine mule and away we went to Barnesly’s.  Our little ones (Istalena and Zeb) were as happy as if they were in a coach and four, and we had a delightful trip.  We are under obligations to Mrs. I. C. Wortz and Miss Addie Baltzell for the many acts of kindness to our party.  The beautiful gardens and grand mansion (or perhaps I should say the English Castle, as it was built by Mr. Barnesley, an English nobleman,) has been visited by most of our county people, and I will not go into a description of the grounds.  I noticed in the yard a plain stone over the grave of Col. R. S. Erle, 29th Regiment Alabama Cavalry, killed by United States forces, May 18, 1864.  After our picnic at the beautiful spring we departed for home delighted with our first visit to Woodlands.
