Monday, December 28, 1863

About six o’clock this evening just after the freight train passed we heard men calling for help--an accident had occurred.  William & John hurried to the station where the engine & 4 cars were thrown from the track.  They dug out the engineer from under the engine and brought him here--his head & wrist terribly scalded & his ankle dislocated. Sent Ivan Smith for a doctor.  All the train men here to supper.
