Monday, May 30, 1864

Gardening today.  Dr. Reigner & son & grandson came on some business with William.
Gen. Grant has re-crossed the North Anna, marched east & is safely across the Pamunky, thus avoiding an engagement with Lee while in his strong fortifications on the South Anna, and flanking him in such a way as to force him to abandon them.  A wise movement.
