1862 June 30 Fredericksburg, Va.

[from the diary of Dr. Brodie Strachan Herndon]

30th --Sisters Ann & Mary, Eliza little
Lucy & Matsy spent the day with us and
we enjoyed their pleasant Company.
Sister Ann talks of tryng to get to
Albemarle to see Mat & Dick who
went there last week from Richmond.
But she is poorly and there are diffi
culties--Matsy says he wishes
Brother could have been in the late battle
that we hear has been going on before
Richmond: he wants him to cover
himself with glory.  We thank God
for the success that has crowned our
arms--if reports be true.

MSS 2563-b
