Wednesday, March 16, 1864

William went to town again, George has got better, and went on the train.  Col. F. W. Moore called.  He told us that Mr. Ainsworth was found dead in one of Bennet Bailey’s fields, this morning.  He had been absent from his boarding place since Sabbath--he was habitually intemperate, and probably died drunk.
Nancy Carlin rode over & took dinner with us.  James is no better & I fear is appointed to die.  He was young, vigorous, brave and handsome.  May the blessed Redeemer give him Salvation.

Mr. Curtis called to see Lizzie.
