Thursday, August 20, 1863

Mrs. Dawes returned home this morning.  We have had a very pleasant visit from her.  Kate went to town to-day & got her Photograph--Lucy, Nancy  & I went to Mrs. Scott’s funeral.  Rev. Mr. Curtis preached.  

Peggy's comments:  A line at the end of this entry has been erased and is unreadable.  The original journals were in Julia Cutler's possession until her death.  They were read by her niece, Sarah Julia Cutler (little Sarah) and later by Rufus Dawes' daughter.  

This may be the photograph that was taken of Kate Dawes:
