Saturday, May 9, 1863

Sarah went home this morning.  One of the two gunboats which have been lying at Parkersburg passed us today    it is partially iron plated & carried ten guns, 32 pounders.  The bridge over the Little Kanawha has been taken up to enable the gunboats to pass up if in order necessary to defend the place.    Rebels reported seven miles out.  Nancy went home.  George Cutter here.
