Friday, May 30, 1862

We went to Mrs. Greenwood's.  Mrs. Chas. Cone, and Mr. and Mrs. Blackinton there.  Pleasant visit.  Lucy came down.  It is reported that Corinth is ours.  All eyes have turned expectantly to this point for several weeks.  A bloody battle was expected.  Gen. Halleck has moved cautiously and it appears successfully.
God grant that those we love may be safe.  Mrs. Cutler received a letter from her sister Maggie who is still out west, enclosing one she had just received from her cousin, Wm. M. Voris of the 17th Illinois regiment, which speaks in the highest terms of Ephraim and of his bravery at the battle of Pittsburg Landing.
