Rev. Thomas Wickes the Congregational minister of Marietta preached for us from the text “Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth” — an excellent discourse — Mr. Hitchcock, the music teacher, conducted the singing — full choir —
Mrs. Wickes came home with us. Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Bailey came in to talk with him about Christ’s second coming — a very interesting conversation.

Mrs. Dawes went home. Mrs. Cutler and Sarah spent the day at Mr. Burgesses. Nancy cleaned the old kitchen to-day, having cleaned the sitting room yesterday — I got dinner. Mrs. Rosa Roberts and Mrs. Mary (Devore) Carpenter came and staid to dinner. Heavy rain — I wrote to Annie Dean telling her that Mrs. Dawes and I would go to Amesville next Thursday.

Showery — A train of cars passed up with returned soldiers said to be from the horrible prison-pen at Andersonville. Who can say what the poor fellows have suffered there! One shrinks from the recital of the cruelties which they have endured. Mrs. Dawes came with Mrs. Cutler from Marietta and we wrote a letter of eight pages on Genealogical subjects to Rev. Abner Morse of Boston. He is just now occupied in making out the “Cutler Genealogy”. We sent him a draft for $50 to aid him in getting out his work.
