August 8, 1863

Moved camp this morning.  Roads very bad.  Worried horses a great deal.  Moved toward Gordonsville near where Camp Wheat was last year.  Think it can not be long before we have another fight.  Hope it will be soon for we need horses & harness.  Also the boys want to get some clothes. On Col. Magruders farm.
