Raining this morning. Sarah and Ephe returned home. The house has been filled nearly all day with people from Hocking and others doing business with William. It is a hard day for him. Annie has gone to spend the night with her Grandmother.
Hocking, Ohio was about 75 miles west of where the Cutler's lived in Constitution, Warren Township. I can't confirm this, but my guess is that the people from Hocking were visiting William on RailRoad business.
Annie Cutler, William and Lizzie's daughter, was probably staying with Mrs. Burgess, Lizzie's mother.
