H.", [Louisa Court House, Va.], July 8, 1861 to Dr. Churchill, reading, in part: "Leadie told me on yesterday that you had requested him to send the ice at George's to Richmond. There is not a great deal of ice there & I think it would be bad policy. There is no bacon & the ice is necessary to keep meat for the negroes. I have been on idea of going there myself to stay a part of my time so that it will be [?] for that reason. When did you hear from George- if you see him tell him to write to me - & you do the same. I came from Ch.ville [Charlottesville] yesterday. All well - yrs. truly, J. L. Gordon."
