Monday, June 30, 1862

Lizzie finished putting up thirty cans of cherries.  John cut the saizette wheat, a specimen of which from the Patent Office grew in the garden.  Lucy and Betty Gates came on the cars for a visit.  The paper says that there was heavy fighting before Richmond three or four days last week particularly Friday.  This battle will be one of momentous importance.  We expect the victory but it may be at fearful cost.  Every day this rebellion appears more inexcusably and terribly wicked.
