Tuesday July 30

The Gazette says the Sixth Regiment of Wisconsin troops passed through Chicago on the evening of the 28" en route to Harrisburg, Pa., where they are to receive their arms.  Rufus' company is in this regiment and we hope that he will get a furlough to visit us as he has proposed to do.

Peggy's comments:
Rufus R. Dawes was Julia's nephew.  They were heading toward Washington to join the Army of the Potomac.
