Monday, April 28, 1862

Mr. Walton took Maggie and Lizzie in the buggy to Rosemond to see the country.  We received letters from home.  They have had high water and a fall of snow since we left.  Mr. Walton has the daily St. Louis Democrat and Kate buys an occasional Chicago paper.  We find that the Ohio troops who have been so basely slandered are being vindicated.  The truth is coming out.  The daily train on the Illinois Central R. R. conveys more or less soldiers, sick or wounded, going home from the hospitals at Cairo or Mound City.  The trains stops about twenty minutes at Pana and the Union ladies of the place with baskets of provisions supply them with food.
