War diary and letters of Stephen Minot Weld

March 29. —Went over to the 10th Massachusetts, with Whittier.[1] Saw Ropes, Macy, and Holmes. Was not very successful in regard to George. From the loth we went to General Whipple’s headquarters, where we saw Henry Dalton. From there went to General [Charles] Griffin’s, and then to [George M.] Barnard’s. Started from the i8th Massachusetts to the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry, where I saw Clapp and Bowditch.[2] Spoke to Clapp about coming here as inspector-general. He said he would like to come. Day very pleasant, but windy.

[1] Charles A. Whittier, my classmate.

[2] Charming Clapp, and Nathaniel I. Bowditch.
