Mr. Bailiey is attending to our sheep this season. They are washing the sheep this morning in the river just above the house. Lucy came down on the 11’ o’clock train and with her Mrs. Graves, and her cousin Mrs. Clark & Miss Belle Dodge and little Minnie Green. We expected Mrs. Dodge & her other daughter Georgia, but this young lady is in very poor health -- disease of the heart -- and cannot leave home to-day. If she is better they will start next Wednesday for their New England home in Lyme N. H. ----- Our guests took dinner, gathered beauquets of roses &c and returned to Marietta on the afternoon train.
William has telegraphed to Ephe, but gets no answer. We are extremely anxious about him.
