Wednesday July 31

Lucy came down this morning to spend the day.  Kate went up and brought Maggie down.  Ephe and Mr. Chatfield (whose strength has improved since he came) went to Marietta this morning.  the 18" Regiment passed on their way to Camp Putnam, where they are to be mustered out of service.  The boat looked gay with their banners but the men themselves looked weary and oppressed by the heat, crowded as they were on open barges under a scorching sun.
First green corn for dinner today.

Peggy's comments:
I'm glad to read that Maggie is well enough to come for a visit.  And I'm reminded of the pleasures of the first corn.
