Sabbath, Oct. 20

Last night quite a fleet of steamboats passed.  I suppose they had on board Gen. Negley's brigade of Pennsylvanians bound for the West.  Three more steamers with soldiers passed this morning.  NO preaching but a sermon read to a good congregation.

Peggy's comments:
General James S. Negley of Pennsylvania was in command of the Seventh Brigade, Department of the Ohio (along the Ohio River).
