Quarles was out serving with the 30th Mississippi when the cabin this book was 'found' in was ransacked by Union soldiers, and used as a Camp Hospital. The 'finder' was 116th IL Chaplain Nathan M. Baker, who has indicated on the first EP his experience in finding the book while on Grants Central Mississippi Campaign, the 'Tallahatchie March.' Verbatim:On December 5th, 1862, we crossed the Tallahatchie river and advanced about six miles to the vicinity of Bawls Mills. Here we encamped for several days. About one fourth mile from camp was a plain log house which was appropriated as a regimental hospital. This house seemed to have been the residence of some professor, as there were philosophical apparatus and a large library, classical and historical. These books were being ransacked and as I had often heard my mother speak of the Memoirs of Mrs Judson, I though I would try and prize it. -N. M.
