Friday Sept. 27

A dreary rainy day; it has rained incessantly.  This week's Intelligence says the 36" regiment (Col. Crook) will soon be brought together at Somersville where they will be put under thorough drill.  Somersville contains 4 or 500 inhabitants and is in Nicholas Co. Va.

Peggy's comments:
I think Julia is referring to a newspaper, probably the Wheeling Intelligencer, which was published in Wheeling, Virginia (now West Virginia).
