Mr. & Mrs. McLean have gone this morning by way of Loveland & Columbus to Wheeling. The thermometer was six below zero. Lucy & Annie Dean went to town going as far as Scott’s Landing with them. The revulsion after the weeks excitement is very noticeable. John betakes himself to blue pills & his bed, Nancy is scarcely able to be about and patronizes Jayns pills and towards night also succumbs and goes to bed. Lizzie does not feel very well, & I had a hard chill last night with decided symptoms of diphtheria. Lizzie & I manage to get supper and all go early to bed. No meeting to night. I spent most of the forenoon with Mrs. W. D. Bailey & had a good talk.
