Friday, Oct. 3, 1862

Kate this forenoon went on horseback with Julia A. Bailey to Mr. Greenwood's.  They have received a dispatch from Cairo saying that Mr. Greenwood would be here Saturday night with the body of his son.
Lucy came down this evening to stay until Monday.  It seems doubtful what the rebels will do next.  A movement on Wheeling and thence to Pittsburg to destroy the arsenal and seize public stores is thought possible.  It is asserted that a large part of Lee's army are being sent to Kanawha.  If so we shall have fighting nearer home.
George went to Chadwick's Schoolhouse for William.
