Wednesday Nov. 30, 1864

Rose early thinking we were near Marietta, but were probably thirty miles above.  Eat breakfast with our bonnets & shawls on, arrived at Marietta between 8 and 9 o’clock A.M. Glad to be on ‘terra firma’ again.  Soon after our arrival at Mrs. Dawes’s little Sarah came bounding in very glad to see me, said her father & mother were in town.  Ephe went with us to the cars and all went home together where we arrived in time for dinner.  W. D. & Andrew J. McClure dined with us.  Andrew has just returned from the West where he has been for several years.  He is a fine looking young man.  Lucy came down on the evening train.  James Carlin came from Parkersburg.  He has sprained his knee badly & it pains him severely.
