Monday, Feb. 1, 1864

William has gone again to Chillicothe.  Maggie & Johnny Means here--John fixed the windows of Sarah’s doll house -- & staid to tea.  Kate received a letter from West Alexandria saying that Mr. McLean would start for this place two weeks from today.
The river is now entirely clear of ice & the weather warm.

Peggy's comments:
Maggie Voris was Lizzie Cutler's younger sister and Johnny Means was a cousin.

Mr. McLean is the Reverend Samuel McLean, Kate Dawes's intended husband, who was coming from West Alexandria, Ohio, approximately 200 miles west of the Old Stone House where the Cutlers lived.
