Culpeper, Va., June 11, 1863.
My supplications continue to ascend for you, my children, and my country. When I last wrote I did not suppose that Fitzhugh would so soon be sent to the rear disabled, and I hope it will be but a short time. I saw him the night after the battle — indeed, met him on the field as they were bringing him from the front. He is young and healthy, and I trust will soon be up again. He seemed to be more concerned about his brave men and officers who had fallen in the battle than himself.
