October 29, 1864
Our boys Jamie and George are at home again, as Mr Hagen their teacher has been called off in home defense. They are all playing in the nursery so happily. Sallie MacNeill & Annie Williams are spending the week with our dear little Jennie, who is an invalid at this time. She had a fall two weeks ago & hurt her arm very badly. It is still so much swollen that the Dr. is unable to tell whether or not it is broken.
