Oct. 1”. 1864. Saturday

I went to Marietta with William.  Miss Mary Cone & Frank Brush who spent last night at our house, went up with us.  I asked the conductors Mr. Brock & Mr. Ridlow to “pass her” which they did, a favor I never asked before for myself or any one.  At the junction we saw Col. Dawes on his way to see Ephe, he will spend the Sabbath at Cincinnati.  Mrs. Dawes and I were invited to dine at Mrs. Giles’ in Harmar with Mrs. Blackinton, it rained very hard all the forenoon & we could not go.  Mr. Giles called in the afternoon & Mrs. Blackinton did not come.  Sarah & I looked over the genealogical Register.  Toward evening called on Mrs. Gates.  Mr. Gates arrived at home this morning from New England where he has been spending several weeks with John Newton in pursuit of health.  Mr. Gates’ brother came out with him on an oil speculation, or to look at oil lands.  We went to Mr. Graves’ but Mrs. Graves was out riding with her husband’s parents now here on a visit from the East.  We then called at Mr. Bachelors to see Sarah Parker, who boards there, but she too was out.  We then started to go to Deacon A. T. Nye’s but Mrs. Dawes was so tired, we turned back calling at Mr. Edward Buells on our way home.
