Sunday, 17 December, 1865

The day is quite inclement. Zac was the only member of the family who attended church. I was taken sick soon after he left and remained in bed most of the day. There was not a lady at Zion. – – Mr. Walthall preached at the C.H. at night, and all three of the boys went. Walked up and returned about ½ past nine. – – Zac brought some ½ doz. letters for us, three from Bake.
