Sept 1. 1864 Thursday

This morning William and his wife & daughter with Maggie J. Voris and Lizzie Poage started on the morning train to Cincinnati.  Lizzie Poage is going to go to school at the Female College at College Hill.   A lonely day at home.  Emeline McClure was here to prayer meeting.  George Cutter came to spend the night.  The Chicago Democratic Convention have nominated Gen. George B. McClellan for President and George Pendleton for Vice President of the United States.  There was a strong party there in favor of Valandingham for President and not much harmony in the happy family of democrats.
