Sarah and Mrs. Buell went up in the forenoon to Mr. Burgess'. Sarah had an attack of sick headache which prevented her from coming into the circle. The Warren Picnic Circle met here. Twenty eight persons present. We had a very pleasant time and good fare. The day was excessively hot. William got home from Chillicothe. Mrs. Buell went home.
The Picnic Circle had the dual purpose of friends gathering to eat and making useful items for the soldiers.
