Here’s this week’s entry:
Master of the Diaries Mike Goad makes a rare appearance this week with a post he calls “Administrivia.” He notes that he is now two months into retirement and finally relaxing enough to make some changes (none to this particular page we are happy to say, but he has some others) and advises of the times of day that his automated system puts up various items. Returning to 1863, our Rebel War Clerk is haunting the telegraph office–we pause to contemplate what he would do with access to CNN–waiting for incoming news of what will become known as the Battle of Chancellorsville. Back in Washington, ironically enough Naval Secretary Gideon Welles is in much the same boat, you should pardon the expression: “Whether Hooker refuses to communicate, and prevents others from communicating, I know not. Other members of the Cabinet, like myself, are, I find, disinclined to visit the War Department under the circumstances.“

Hi Mike, enjoying your Chronicles, but locked out of comments. Would you drop me an email please?
Mike @ 6:34 pm
Thanks! Comments fixed and email sent.
Akismet has caught 32,483 spam so far on Chronicles and, since the spam was getting there, I didn’t think there was any chance that my settings were messed up. In fact, there were some spam comments yesterday that made it past Askimet, but were waiting in moderation. Weird.

Mike, I didn’t know where to write a note to you, so I put it here, hoping you will find it.
The title of John Montgomery’s book is “The Fall of Daoradh”., published by iUniverse.
