Wednesday 3 [July 1861]
Will went to Richmond this morning. Papa wrote word last night that he was suggesting him for Prize Commissioner since legal proceedings have to be gone through with when ever a prize is brought in I believe. Do not know whether Will would like to have the place.
There are not more than thirty soldiers at the Hospital. The rest have been taken to private houses.
Got a long and affectionate letter from Mother yesterday.
Met several of my suits of clothes on the street, felt like speaking to them.
