Monday, July 27, 1863

This morning news came on train that Morgan was captured yesterday.  Just before noon 5 of the soldiers came & sang several pieces of sacred music beautifully, we invited them to dine but the train came for them too soon to allow it.  The company marched up by here, halted at the gate, & displayed their flag which was sent to the front at Berlin Heights.  Then by the Captain’s request gave three cheers for the Cutler family and so ends the Morgan raid--  Capt. Moore’s Co. have got home.
