Wednesday Nov. 5, 1862

The first steamboat (except some diminutive low water specimens) we have seen for many weeks passed down early this morning.  The river has risen two feet or more.  I went with Miss Ainsworth to visit at Mr. Cains Cole's in Virginia.  Old Mr. Sardis Cole came over in his skiff for us and also staid and took dinner at his son's.  He is an intelligent and loyal man.  He told me much about the early history of Warren.  After a pleasant visit we re-crossed the river and I got home about sunset.  Kate and I received invitations to Miss Augusta Hollister's wedding tomorrow evening.
