Excerpt from Journal of an Excursion, From Troy, N. Y., To Gen. Carr's Head Quarters, at Wilson's Landing, (Fort Pocahontas,) on the James River, Va., During the Month of May, 1865
The following description of our trip to Richmond and vicinity, was written immediately after m... y return from the scenes and incidents given in the following pages, from notes and letters addressed to friends at home, for my own entertainment, and without the least idea at the time of putting into print, and now only at the solicitation of some of our party on that occasion have I consented to its private publication, that we may occasionally refer to it, as an episode in our lives, and to remind us of the generous hospitality of our host and hostess, Gen. And Mrs. J. B. Carr, and of our visit to scenes such as had not been before witnessed by us, and in all human probability we would never look upon again, from the same cause, in our land.
