Friday, June 3d, 1864

A great many called at Mrs. Dawes’ to inquire about Ephe among them were Prof. Andrews and lady, Mr. W. Buell, Mr. S. Slocomb, Mrs. Buell, Mrs. Hawkins, Mrs. Sam Shipman, Mrs. S. Newton, Dr. Frank Hart, Miss Cone &c. &c, all express their sympathy & regret.  Charlie B. Gates’ funeral was attended in the Congregational Church at 2 o’clock.  We went to the house and went with the family.  Pres. Andrews made a very good address & Mr. Wickes prayed.  The funeral was very numerously attended.  Lucy came with me to meet the Cincinnati train where I found William.  Ephe was wounded at Dallas, Ga. very badly -- this is all we know.  Our anxiety about him is very great.
