Tuesday, Oct. 14, 1862

This is election day in Ohio and Pennsylvania.  This morning it was cloudy and dark but the sun has set without a cloud and the day has been pleasant.  We know that in this Congressional district the result is very uncertain.  
The victory at Corinth assumes larger proportions.  It is now stated that our men buried 1200 of the rebel dead.  1500 more were wounded and we took 600 prisoners, bringing their loss to nine or ten thousand, -- So says. Gen. Pope.

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