Papers of the Reaves and McDowell families by Reaves (Family :( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Letter, 20 October 1861, from J.H. Reaves to brother-in-law A[lison] A[lexander] McDowell (husband of Mary Ann Reaves), was written in the early hours of morning while watching over "my Darling little infant expecting the last moment of its existence to soon come." It was a lonely vigil for "no one sits up with me, no one has been in from the neighborhood ... either." From his camp on Black River, Va., John C. Ursery wrote the Rev. D.M. McLure on 13 May 1863. He was pleased to be in Hampton Legion as several friends were assigned to the unit with him. He seemed relieved to report that the "morality of the company ... is better than I expected" although "some, nay many ... profane the name of God." He acknowledged that serving God was difficult when one was "away from the influences of home and the refined society of woman, too often all the restraints are thrown off too."
