1862 December 29 farm outside Savannah, Ohio

[from the diary of James Dinsmore Templeton, former musician and private in the 23rd Ohio]

 Monday, Dec. 29, 1862

After doing the
morning work
went down to the
sheep shed & put on
the roof.  Pap went
to town - went over
to the old house for
more clapbords this
Have worked all
day and am tired
Cloudy this afternoon
threatening a storm
pleasant day
Letters one from
Libbie Weeks & one
from Ella Dinsmore
came to light this evening
they came whilst I was
in Pa.
