1863 January 17 Murfreesboro

[from the diary of Captain William F. Hunter, Co. B, 97th Ohio]

     Jan. 17th, ’63.
Clear & cold this morn-
ing. Felt quite sick to-
day. Reported that 80 ft.
of the R.R. bridge was wash-
ed away.

[The following is written perpendicularly across the bottom of the page]
From this day un-
til the 29th, I was
so unwell that I’m un-
able to recollect, dis-
tinctly, what occurred,
but I guess there was
nothing unusual.

[transcript by Mary Roy Dawson Edwards]
