Wednesday. Sept. 21. 1864

William came home on an extra train yesterday, and went to town to bring Sarah home.  Rufus & Lucy have both gone to Cincinnati to be with Ephraim at the time when his face is operated upon by Dr. Blackman.  It will be a very severe operation, God grant to put underneath him the ever lasting arms, & sustain & bless him.
Mrs. Dickey & Mrs. Lindley called.

I went to town on the afternoon train to stay with Sister Sarah until we hear favorable news from Cincinnati.  I found Mrs. Dawes quite unwell & glad to see me.  Rev. Mr. Wickes who has just returned from a visit to New York was there making a call.
