Tuesday. May. 30. 1865

Mr. Limley Wilcox was in this morning and told us that the late rains had thrown down some of the trestles between here & Marietta so that trains cannot get through & passengers have to walk round — advised us to wait a few days before attempting to go home —  Mrs. Lewis was here to spend the day.  she is a very pleasant lady — Her husband a Methodist minister formerly on this Circuit, is now a chaplain in the army, and is expecting soon to return to his family as his regiment is about to be mustered out of service —  Miss Maria Brawley, a friend of Annie’s, was here to tea.
