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.
