Thursday, December 3, 1863

A very pleasant day.  Mrs. Burgess invited us all up to eat a “turkey dinner” with them.  Rev. J. S. Poage was there.  I did not go on account of rheumatism.
William brought from town letters from Ephe written just before the battle of Chattanooga.  We are very anxious to be assured of his safety.  He was under Gen. H. Ewing and was certainly in the fight.  O the weary waiting for news--

Peggy's comment:
