Tuesday, May 27, 1862

This is Ephraim's birthday.  God keep him always and bring in safety and peace to his home.  We expected to go to Mr. Greenwood's today but they sent us word they should be happy to see us another day, Mrs. Greenwood being called to attend the funeral of her nephew, Luther Edgerton at Newport.  He was a soldier and died in hospital at Louisville.
Mrs. Burgess, Lizzie, Annie Dean and I went out to the grave yard.  We called on Mrs. Wilson at Mrs. Dickey's.  Her husband is assistant surgeon in the 75th Ohio regiment now in Virginia.  We also called at Bennet Bailey's.  Mrs. Burgess took supper with us.
