Camp at Warrington Junction

Feb 8th 1864


Short pencil letter on half sheet.  He has been preparing a letter for the Herald which he will send with this and asks her to have father drop it at the Herald Office.  Fighting seems to have ceased on the Rappidan and he doesn’t know the particulars except they took a number of prisoners who are passing by on the Rail Road by squads.  It was a reconnaissance accomplished by their army.  They are to have a review of their Division at one o’clock and he is in a hurry.


“You need not tell many that I wrote this piece if it appears in Print for they would laugh at you”.  Closing.
