Saturday, July 26th, 1862

Kate went to Marietta this morning to visit some schoolmates at her mother's.  William has gone to Athens by special invitation, to speak at a war meeting.  The Marietta people sent down Charlie Newton for him to make an address to them to-day, but he has agreed to go to Athens.  He came back on the evening train and found Mr. Morris here waiting for him to look at the cattle & Mr. Scott the Bible Agent was here to tea.  I wrote to Martha A. Carter and enclosed 20 dollars.

Peggy's comments:
Kate Dawes was Julia's 32-year-old niece who lived with the Cutler's.  She was about the same age as Lizzie Cutler, William's wife.

Martha A. Carter was also a niece of Julia's.  Her mother was Julia's half-sister, Nancy Cutler Carter.
