The Col. & Mrs. Dawes went home on this morning’s train. Nancy’s brother James P. Carlin here to supper and to stay all night. Mrs. Joel Deming called here today. James P. Walton came on the evening train -- he is sister Clara’s oldest son. I think it is about seven years since he went to Illinois with his parents he is now near seventeen years old, not tall, but a bright looking boy.
James P. Walton, Julia's nephew, would be educated at Marietta College and become a civil engineer.
