Diary and Letters of Rutherford Birchard Hayes

Camp White, July 6, 1863.

Dear Uncle:—. . . I propose to take in your bank twenty-five hundred dollars stock in Lucy’s name. Please see when you get the cash to put the stock in her name. I have in Stephenson’s hands one thousand dollars and expect fifteen hundred dollars more in three weeks. I send you an order for it.

Reports from the East look well. If true, we shall perhaps go forward here. The Rebels found fighting in the enemy’s country a different thing from battling on their own ground.


R. B. Hayes.
