Thursday Dec. 29 1864

Miss Nye left us about two o’clock P. M.  She went from here to the grave yard to visit Henry’s grave.  James Walton went with her as far as the Gravel Bank.  She went to Marietta on the afternoon train.
The weather is becoming cold again.  We are expecting Mr. Walton every boat.

Peggy’s comment:

Miss Nye was engaged to be married to Henry Dawes (Julia’s nephew), the oldest son of Sarah Cutler Dawes and Henry Dawes.  Young Henry died at the age of 28 in 1860.
