[from the diary of Joseph Addison Waddell, civilian employee of the Quartermaster Dept.]

Monday, Sept. 29, 1862.
Reported that the enemy are advancing upon 
Winchester, in several columns. Our army has 
fallen back to the vicinity of that town. Have
heard from Legh — he was at Winchester on Sat-
urday, detained there to assist in the removal 
of stores.
