Thursday, Jan. 21, 1864

The late snow storm has blockaded many of the western and northern Railroads, and quite an alarming number of accidents have occurred during the present month -- many of them occasioned by the cold weather.  The last storm the weather has not been severe, the thermometer much of the time 30o above zero.  We fear that Rufus and his bride have been detained by the snow, but have heard nothing yet from them.
Mrs. Carlin came again this afternoon.  There has been much sickness on Hocking this winter -- mostly fevers & some deaths have resulted -- a Mr. Geared, a child of Mrs. Scott, and Lewis Ellenworth have died -- most of those now sick are getting better.
