Friday, Sept. 2. 1864

Mr. Burgess and Rev. J. C. McCoy called.  I saw Miss Hannah Love at the Post Office, it was reported that John Newton intended to marry her, but his family broke off the match.  She is a smart girl and has attended the best schools in Marietta, and has herself been a successful teacher.  She has plenty of confidence in her self and is an inveterate talker -- there is nothing to be said against her but her humble birth.         The train was late to-night.  James P. Walton came on it & will stay til Monday.  There is a report that Sherman has taken Atlanta Georgia.  I wrote to Clara.
