Kate took the children to meet their father at Scotts Landing.  Miss Guthrie and Mr. Train from Putnam caller here this morning.  Temple Cutler who has been in Florida, Chaplain to the 9th Maine Reg. has resigned and is going back to Skowhegan.  He and his wife came down on the evening train.  He is looking very well and has much to tell that is interesting.  While at St. Augustine he was quartered in Senator Yuler's (?) house.  He gave me a specimen of the stone (a kind of conglomerate of shells) of which the old fortifications at St. Augustine are made, also a bit of wood taken from the oldest house in America.
