Diary of Ephraim Shelby Dodd, Co. D of Terry's Texas Rangers

25th—Went to town to-day. Passed the day pleasantly; took dinner with Rome. Saw Cousin Mollie; came out to Mr. Mobley’s; took supper. Met with Col. Cox, Mr. Barrick of Glasgow, Ky., and Mr. Johnson and Lady of Nashville. Miss Mobley was very sociable. I sit till bedtime. Time passed pleasantly. Now, that we are acquainted, have become attached to the folks, we have to leave; always the case. I made the acquaintance of Miss Maggie Ezzell, Miss Mattie Sommers, Miss Fannie Summers and Miss Mollie Robert and enjoyed myself with them finely.
