Mrs. Leroy Dramar and Mrs. A. S. Bailey called on us. Mr. Dramer whose house is in Morgantown West Virginia wishes to purchase a place below Marietta. I wish he may do so. They are pleasant & good people. Mrs. Cutler went up to see her mother who is still feeble and Lizzie Poage who has been sick with mumps. Marther Collville is gone to spend the Sabbath at Mr. McTaggarts.
While we deplore the great loss of life in late battles, and shudder at those yet to be fought, we cannot but hope & believe that progress is being made and God is blessing our army and giving them the victory.
