Thursday, October 29, 1863

Another hard frost.  I saw one steamboat with two coal barges in tow.  There is great scarcity of coal at Cincinnati, where it has sold for 50 cents a bushel.  The railroad is doing all it can to relieve the destitution. There is great lack of fuel in most of our river towns which depend on Pittsburg & Wheeling for Coal.  Nancy is home & cleaning.  Circle met at Mrs. Dickey’s.  [a line is crossed out and unreadable.]
