Friday, January 16, 1863

The rain which has fallen here for a day or two seems to have been a snow storm farther west & south.  Trains on the M. &. C. R.Road were stopped by it -- snow at Blanchester thirty inches deep with two large engines they made but three miles an hour & laid up for the night. Kate has spent the day on the sofa quite prostrated by the painful excitement of yesterday.  Lucy came on the cars to spend the night.
