Monday, October 26, 1863

Mrs. Dawes & Kate went to town & William to Chillicothe.
I finished planting out tulips and other bulbs.  Sarah went up to her Grandmothers to spend the night.  At Marietta they have a torch light procession, general illumination, rockets & burning tar barrels in honor of Brough’s election.

Peggy's notes:
John Brough, a pro-Union candidate, was elected Governor of Ohio.
