Thursday May 18”. 1865

Showery — A train of cars passed up with returned soldiers said to be from the horrible prison-pen at Andersonville.  Who can say what the poor fellows have suffered there!  One shrinks from the recital of the cruelties which they have endured.  Mrs. Dawes came with Mrs. Cutler from Marietta and we wrote a letter of eight pages on Genealogical subjects to Rev. Abner Morse of Boston.  He is just now occupied in making out the “Cutler Genealogy”.  We sent him a draft for $50 to aid him in getting out his work.
