Letter from Rufus Dawes to his wife, June 23

Before Petersburg, June 23rd, 7 P. M.
I have lain all day in this dirty hole and am too stupid for any use.  The Calcutta black hole was not more disagreeable and the constant shower of rebel bullets are the chains that keep us imprisoned.  Things look rather blue, I must confess, about Petersburg.
