Diary and Letters of Rutherford Birchard Hayes

Camp White, October 19, 1863.

Dear Uncle: — You are a prophet. Brough’s majority is “glorious to behold.” It is worth a big victory in the field. It is decisive as to the disposition of the people to prosecute the war to the end. My regiment and brigade were both unanimous for Brough.

Lucy will go to Chillicothe and home this week. She will fix up matters, gather the chickens, and return in two or three weeks, if all things look well, for the winter. She will, in that case, rent the house in Cincinnati. Love to Birch.


R. B. Hayes.

S. Birchard.
