Colonel Rutherford B. Hayes to Sardis Birchard: November 8, 1862

Cincinnati, November 8, 1862.

Dear Uncle: — Lucy and I came down Tuesday and are now comfortably home again. My arm improves rapidly, and I think in two or three weeks I shall return to the regiment. All the boys came down with their grandma and Aunt Lucy. They are very healthy and happy. In haste.

R. B. Hayes.
