Thursday Nov. 13, 1862

I heard at noon that Ephe arrived in Marietta last night.  Maj. Gen. Sherman having sent him to Ohio on Military business.  This is unexpected and pleasant news.  I went to G. W. Bailey's to attend circle taking Annie and Sarah with me.  Went late because Mr. Burgess was here and I had to read the Gazette to him before going.  This eveing our friends arrived safely from Cincinnati accompanied by Ephraim, his mother and Lucy who joined them at Scotts Landing.  Ephe gave us a very interesting account of his experience at the battle of Pittsburg Landing.  He is looking very well.
