Monday, Nov. 17, 1862

Late letters from Rufus say that he is still in command of the regiment and is near Warrenton. Col. Cutler whose wound is partially healed has returned but is in command of the brigade.  After the terrible fighting that brigade did during Pope's retreat and at South Mountains and Antietam, they ought not to be put in the forefront of the battle again so soon.  May God watch over them for good and if it is His holy will, keep Rufus unharmed as heretofore.  William has been very much occupied arranging his business preparatory to going to Washington.  It began to rain last night and looks as if we might expect a "spell of weather".
