Thursday Oct 27 1864

Clara’s birthday may she have many happy returns of it.  Mrs. Dawes & Martha Colville went to Marietta.  Rainey.  Mr. N. L. Wilson telegraphed yesterday to William to go out on an extra train with him to-day.  He is coming home from New York City to Chillicothe to cast his vote for President & wants to talk over business matters.  The train came about ten o’clock A.M. and William started with his carpet sack full of Coopers apples & some Catawba grapes--
Maggie came down this afternoon, & Mr. Burgess was here this morning before light to see if Mrs. Burgess had come.  They expected to start home Tuesday.

Peggy's note:
Clara is Clara Cutler Walton, Julia's sister.  She lived in Pana, Illinois, and on this day, she was 48.
