The Daily Dispatch: August 30, 1864., [Electronic resource], The burning of Hon. Mr. Boteler's residence. (search)
er husband, and Fountain Rock and Bedford are both desolated! My heart aches to have such terrible tidings of the dearest spot in all the world to you. I fear I loved it too much, but my greatest grief is for our darling parents. We are young, and bear such changes better, but their life-ties were formed and riveted there. I'll write more in the morning, when fitted for it. How many will be sorry to hear all this! I read Hunter's order myself — had it in my hands and tried to keep it to send papa, but it was taken out of my hands. Your devoted sister, Tippe. This correspondent closes his letter as follows: The house was not the property of Mr. Boteler, but belonged to Mrs. Boteler, who, like a Spartan mother, has remained through all the dangers of war to protect her property and children. With the exception of the "gallant" Milroy, who deprived her of her servants, she and her daughters have received every courtesy from the generals of the contending armies.
