Tuesday, December 29, 1863

Mr. Durand & W. P. Putnam, Ephe & Lucy Dr. Limon Wort & Dr. Seth Hart were here last night.  I dressed the head of the engineer Fred Washburn--he was determined to go to his home in Chillicothe.  He was carried to the train in a rocking chair.  I never saw any one endure pain as he did.  That accident was occasioned by some persons turning the switch--it was very dark & the engine backing down.  Mr. Ridlow & Mr. Graves were to dinner.  Major Dawes went back to war.
