Monday, June 9, 1862

William went this morning on the "Express" steamer bound to Wheeling on his way to Washington.  The Baltimore and Ohio Road is not yet open.  
Kate & Annie went to Marietta & brought Marion home with them.  Mrs. Terril washed.  I wrote to Martha A. Carter & sent twenty dollars from William.
Sixteen hundred of our soldiers belonging to Gen. Prentiss' division who were captured at Pittsburg Landing have been paroled by the rebels because they could not feed them.  Four hundred more are to be released soon.
