Friday, June 10" 1864

Mrs. Dawes went to town this morning & came back on the 11’ o’clock train.  Mr. Burgess, Capt. Augustus Dickey, Mr. W. W. Graves, Mrs. W. D. Bailey & Miss Maggie Voris called to see the Major.  Dr. Frank Hart came down to see him and dress his wound.  He says by a skillful surgical operation with the aid of the Dentist that he can speak and eat as well as ever again.  Dr. Blackman told him that by next October he thought, he would be well enough to have an operation performed.  A new under lip will have to be made, a new jaw and teeth inserted -- after which he thinks the disfigurement will not be great.
