Letter from Rufus Dawes to his wife, Mary June 28

Before Petersburg, June 28th, 1864
We are to go out to the entrenchments to-night to relieve the second brigade, but as there is no firing on the line in our front, the service is not hard.  I am trying to get my company business straightened out, but the loss of so many officers, and the confusion resulting from so long an inattention to returns, makes a great deal of trouble.  I fear our pay rolls will be defective.
