Thursday, Feb. 18, 1864

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.
