Saturday May 27” 1865

This is Ephraim’s twenty-fifth birthday    may he enjoy many happy returns of the day — We climbed the hill back of Mr Dean’s house and had a fine view of a part of the old Farm and the surrounding country.  Mrs. Emily Wyatt wife of John Wyatt Esq. having died suddenly was buried today —  Mr. Dean & Annie attended the funeral  —  We took a walk to the graveyard on the old Farm — Dr. L. Fulton has erected a very neat marble monument to the memory of his late wife Louisa Cutler Fulton — In this old grave yard the Ames’s, Walker’s, Rice’s and other of families of the old settlers have found their final resting place — And here lies my father’s brother Charles a man of superior abilities and fine culture who was smitten down by consumption in the prime of life —

Ephraim Cutler Dawes
