Dr. Spencer G. Welch to Cordelia Strother Welch, June 14, 1863

Camp near Fredericksburg, Va.,        
June 14, 1863.

The Yankees have all gone back on the other side of the river, and we have left our entrenchments and taken up camp in the rear. I think we shall not remain here long, but I do not know what we shall do next. The enemy seem to have left Fredericksburg. If we do not move tomorrow I may write again.

I am getting very anxious to hear from you and George.
