Friday, Jan. 8th, 1864

Three inches more snow fell during yesterday afternoon & last night, making about 8 inches during the present storm.  Sun shines today and eaves drip a little.  Emeline McClure spent the day here.  She says George E. Cutter spent Wednesday night at their house.  He was on his way to Washington City, meeting W. P. McClure on the cars and learning that it was doubtful whether he could cross the Ohio at Parkersburg on account of the drifting ice, he & Mr. Wyatt stopped with McClure who took them next day over in a skiff.
Mrs. Dawes came down on the evening train.  William also returned from Cincinnati, he spent last night in Chillicothe and suffered with cold.  Emeline McClure here all night.
