War diary and letters of Stephen Minot Weld


April 2. — Channing Clapp came over from camp, and we went over to General Sedgwick’s together. As we found no one in there, we went to General Devens’s[1] where we saw the general, Colonel Eustis, and Lieutenant Davis of the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry. I sent the general’s letter asking for Clapp, to General Williams, and also a communication asking to have him detailed as acting assistant adjutant-general until his regular appointment arrived. Saw General W. personally about it. Weather pleasant, but very windy in the evening.

[1] General Charles Devens, afterwards Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court, and Attorney-General of the U. S. under President Hayes.
