Thursday, May 21, 1863

Wrote to Martha A. Carter, inclosing fifty dollars from William.

Peggy’s comments:
Martha A. Carter was another niece of Julia’s.  Her parents were Nancy Cutler (Julia’s older half-sister) and Rufus Gregory Carter.

On this day, Rufus Dawes wrote to Mary Gates:  
We are under orders to march at daylight with three days’ rations and without knapsacks.
