Wednesday, April 9, 1862

Maggie here nearly all day, very rainy, river rising.  William, Kate and Annie came on the evening train.  There has been a desparate battle near Pittsburg, Tenn., where Ephe is.  William has telegraphed to learn of his safety.  He hopes to hear tomorrow.  God grant it may be well with him.  But to thousands of households news must come bringing weeping lamentation and despair.  Island No. 10 is taken.
