Tuesday, March 11

I have sore throat, pain in my head and limbs, with chillness.  I suppose it is a touch of diphtheria.  Kate has been working with the sewing machine.  It does very well.  Lizzie came home tonight bringing word that a dispatch received in town announces the occupation of Winchester by our troops, and the evacuation of Manassas by the rebels.  I hope it is true.  There is said to be a great deal of sickness at Paducah.  I feel anxious about Ephraim and very anxious to hear more from  the army of the Potomac where Rufus is.  God keep them both.  Sister Sarah has just heard that Jane in Persia is the mother of a little son.  George received [unreadable] Cutler at Boothbys & Blues [unreadable] today.
