Saturday, Sept. 13, 1862

William has been at home writing letters and arranging his business with G. W. Bailey, &c.  He says that it is very irksome to him to stand as candidate with so much uncertainty as to results.  The conservative Republicans are constantly urging on him, caution, saying that it will not do to come out plainly against Slavery, denouncing it as the cause of the rebellion (while they admit that it is the cause) for fear Union Democrats will be offended.

Peggy's comments:
Julia's brother, William P. Cutler, was running for a second term as congressman.
