July 1862 Home

I would have to give them daily & constant attention, & this I could not do unless I moved there with my family & abandoned my farm. However willing I would be to make any sacrifice of private interests to public duty if my services were necessary, I do not think there is any necessity in this case, as the work may be done as well, & perhaps better done, by those who would be glad to accept the post
5.PM We are still without definite results of the great battle before Richmond - There seems to be no doubt of the complete rout of McClellans grand army - but whether any large portion has escaped or not is yet unknown. Frank Ravenel was killed whilst leading a regiment in the thickest of the night on Tuesday night July 1st.
I sent this afternoon boxes of Peaches to Huger Dawson & Mrs Wm Snowden This afternoon Wm Wilson & his wife & daughter called to see us - also Miss Deas & Miss Holmes.
