Monday, November 9, 1863

Lucy & Carrie Wickes left this morning.  A little sprinkling of snow fell last night, the first of the season and to-day a snow storm has made the earth white.  Mrs. Terril and Rosa Roberts here helping us.  Mrs. Dawes came to spend the night and to bring Kate some medicine.  There was a battle on the Rappahannock between Meades army & Lee’s on Saturday last, Nov. 7”.  Victory for us--we took 1,800 prisoners.

Peggy's comment:
More information at the battle at Rappahannock Station here.
