Thursday, April 7th, 1864

Seventy six years ago today Gen. Rufus Putnum and his associates (among whom was Uncle Jervis Cutler) landed at the mouth of the Muskingum and commenced the first permanent white settlement in Ohio.  
A pleasant spring like day.  I weeded the tulip border.  
Heard that Gen. Sigel had telegraphed to George M. Woodbridge for 100 farm horse teams & wagons, for transportation.  Imboden, the rebel General, is threatening Sigel with a large cavalry force which is said to be advancing on Clarksburg, West Va.
Female Prayer meeting here.  Mrs. McClure, Emiline, Mrs. W. D. Bailey and Mrs Burgess here.
