Saturday Oct. 22. 1864

Mrs. Perry and daughter left on the morning train.  Quite a snow storm this forenoon.  Nancy Carlin & her sister went to Parkersburg to see their brother James who is in hospital there.  Paid Nancy one dollar.  Martha Colville came home from Mr. Burgess’s this afternoon & finished my new black delaine dress.  No papers.

Peggy's comment:
"Delaine" refers to a type of fabric.  
The newspapers were delivered by the postal service.
