Monday, June 6" 1864

William went to Marietta where he found this dispatch from Major E. C. Dawes dated at Nashville June 5” --  “I leave for Cincinnati tomorrow -- wound doing well.”

Peggy's note:
On June 6, Rufus wrote to his wife Mary about her brother:
I have received your father's note announcing Charley's death.  How strange that so suddenly, while you have suffered so long in dread of harm to me, I am safe, and Charley is called to his grave.  Truly, we can not tell what is in store for us.
Rufus had not yet heard that his own brother, Ephraim, had been wounded.
