Saturday, Feb. 20, 1864

Annie Dean started home by the cars this morning and Nancy Carlin also to take care of her brother James whose wound continues very troublesome.  I fear he will never be well.  Rosa Roberts came to help us while Nancy is away -- but it seems that the 36th have re-enlisted and are on their way home -- her husband will claim her when he gets here I suppose & we must get other help, or do without.  Mrs. Dawes came on evening train & will spend the sabbath.  A war has commenced in Europe & a battle occurred in which the Danes repulsed the Germans.
