Hibler & J. Newcomb superentend [sic] its erection - to these gentlemen I am indebted for favors - The Anniversary of these battles will be around about the 25th of June - would it not be a good idea to devote a page to these cemeteries and the Gaines Mill ruins also Glendale Church? the cemetery fence encloses 2 acres of ground."
