Wednesday, June 18, 1862

This afternoon we heard that Dyer McClure was thought to be dying.  Kate having missed the train went down on horseback.  She sent back her horse by George and remained for the night.  A. S. Bailey is also going to stay.  There is no hope of Dyer's surviving the night.
A heavy storm this evening.  We received an invitation to spend Friday at Mr. Geo. Dana's, Belpre.

Peggy's comments:
Dyer McClure was wounded at the battle of Lewisburg on May 23, 1862.
