Tuesday Nov. 8. 1864

This is the day for Presidential Election.  President Lincoln is the candidate of the Union party and Gen. McClellan that of the Copperheads.  We confidently hope for success and dare scarcely think what the consequence of defeat would be.  May God who holds the hearts of all men in his hand give us the Victory.  Great frauds in the votes of New York Soldiers’ home have been discovered, the State Agents were rascals who changed the votes from Lincoln to McClellan -- A rainy day --
William went & voted and in the afternoon went to Marietta.  Ephraim came home with him.
