    Editor Webster Times: Dear sir. Will you be kind enough to publish the following communication which I have copied from the Baltimore American in reference to the decoration of the graves of Union soldiers at the National Cemetery, Balls’ Bluff, Va. It will be highly gratifying to all members of the old 15th Regiment, especially those who took part in the engagement of October 21st, 1861, who are still living, to know that their comrades who lie buried there although somewhat isolated, were not forgotten on Decoration Day by the Union people of that section of the country.
    “As has been the custom for years, a pleasant company of ladies and gentlemen, representing the aged as well as the youth assembled there today, and placed upon each head board a floral offering in the form of wreaths and bouquets that would have done honor to a ladies boudoir. The choicest of flowers were strewn in abundance.
    We found the ground neat and clean. The little company, after partaking of refreshments which most of them needed after a ride of some six or eight miles on horseback, entered into social conversation, each relating that he knew concerning the battle, the burial, ect.
    The friends of the “unknown Union Soldiers” may rest assured that those who lie buried at Balls’ Bluff are not forgotten by the union people of Loudoun county.”
    Yours, very respectfully,
    John Maley
