Wednesday, June 8" 1864

Lizzie Cutler went to town today.  Recieved the following dispatch from William “Cincinnati June 8”.  Ephraim arrived this morning.  He will remain here to-day.  The outer part of his under jaw was cut off by a musket ball.  The wound is a bad one, but I think not dangerous.  He suffered intensely the past three days, but it does not pain him now.”  We also recieved a note from Lucy saying they should be home tomorrow.  To-day Dr. George Blackman the most distinguished surgeon in Cincinnati is to see Ephe, and decide what can be done for his wound.  He will come here at William’s desire, because it is cool & quiet.
