Saturday Oct. 25, 1862

Kate received a letter from Marion Hunter this morning.  She is at Dr. Williamson's.  William and Lizzie dined at Mr. Burgess'.  A dark, drizzling afternoon with a cold northerly wind.  This is the first cold storm we have had.
I put up four jars of tomato pickles.
Gen. Buell who has managed matters so badly in Kentucky is now superceded by Gen. Rosecrans.  Buell's sympathies are known to be strongly Southern.  Rosecrans has done well heretofore.  I hope he will not fail us now.
