Very cold last night, but a dense fog saved our fruit from injury — William went to Chillicothe — Major Dawes went on the morning train. He is going East to Washington and New York — His health has suffered from too close confinement to business. I hope the trip may do him good.
James Walton came down for his Spring coat which Martha has made for him —
Mrs. Cutler & Sarah went to see Maggie this afternoon and then in the carriage to singing school. Mr Hitchcock the teacher has just heard of the death, from wounds recieved in battle, of his brother Myron Hitchcock — therefore no singing school.
