Thursday, December 24, 1863

Kate not well.
Mr. Boothby who is building a steam mill for us & dwelling house for himself on Hocking sent us a fat young goose for Christmas dinner.

Maggie gave me Whittier’s “In War Time”.  She & her mother were down to see Annie who is yet confined to her room with diptheria.  Gave Mrs. Ames coffee, soda &c to keep Christmas.

Peggy's comments:
John Greenleaf Whittier published a book of poems focused on the Civil War.  It's available here.
