From the Richmond Dispatch, 8/16/1864, p.1, c. 6
Excursion to Drewry’s Bluff. – The steamer William Allison will leave her wharf at Rocketts this evening for a pleasure trip to Drewry’s Bluff. She will have one board a band of music, so that those who wish to participate in the dance can do so. Such a trip this weather will be exceedingly pleasant to those who cannot leave the city of a length of time.
