Tuesday, May 31, 1864

Lucy came on the evening train.  They have just heard that Charles Gates is very sick at Harper’s Ferry with pneumonia.  Mr. and Mrs. Gates were on the train going to him.

Peggy's comments:
Charles Gates, Mary Gates Dawes's 19 year old brother, had enlisted and was injured on the train derailment outside Marietta on May 23.
