From The Library of Virginia:
Bryan, John Randolph. Letter, 16 April 1862.
Accession 20438. 1 leaf.
Photostat (positive).
Letter, 16 April 1862, from John Randolph Bryan (1806-1887) of Eagle Point, Gloucester County, Virginia, to D.C. Randolph of Richmond, Virginia, concerning the fighting between Confederate and Union forces at Yorktown, Virginia. Bryan notes that Union General George B. McClellan (1826-1885) has 100,000 men between Ship's Point in York County, Virginia, and Lee's Mill in Warwick County (now Newport News), Virginia and adds that Union vessels have shelled Confederate positions in York County and the Guinea Woods. Bryan states that he had crossed the York River to go to York County with Randolph Harrison of Elk Hill and a member of the 46th Virginia Infantry and viewed some firing of cannon. He comments on faulty cannon made by the Tredegar Ironworks. Bryan states that several slaves he and others in Gloucester County own have run away and frets over the wheat crop. Bryan wishes that he was with Randolph in Richmond where it is safe and quiet. Bryan's daughter is with him at Eagle Point, but they are about to leave for King William County, Virginia.
