MY HORSE (WHICH I RECEIVED ON MONDAY) STOOD THE MARCH LIKE A HERO. I LIKE HIM BETTER EVERY DAY. I CANNOT SEE HOW I HAVE MANAGED TO GET ALONG WITHOUT HIM UP TO THIS TIME. THE HALTER THAT YOU HAD MADE WAS IN A SHATTERED CONDITION WHEN IT REACHED ME BUT I SECURED ANOTHER & A MUCH BETTER ONE IMMEDIATELY FROM THE QUARTER MASTER. WE ARE NOW ENCAMPED IN THE FAIR GROUND --- A LOVELY SPOT BUT MUCH ABUSED BY THE REBELS, ETC. JUST BEFORE I SAT DOWN TO WRITE THIS LETTER THE OFFICER OF THE DAY CAME TO MY TENT & REQUESTED THAT I SHOULD GO WITH HIM TO AN AJOINING WOODS WHERE THE COL. THINKS HE WILL MOVE THE CAMP THIS AFTERNOON. WHILE THERE THREE YOUNG GIRLS CAME OUT OF A HOUSE & SPOKE TO ME. ONE OF THEM ASKED IF I WOULD GIVE HER MY BEAUTIFUL HORSE --- I ASKED HER IF SHE WAS A UNION LADY? IF SO SHE SHOULD HAVE MY HORSE IF I SHOULD HAPPEN TO BE KILLED BY MORGAN. BUT SHE SAID "WHEN THE REBELS ARE HERE I AM A REBEL. WHEN THE UNION ARMY IS HERE I AM UNION". WE TALKED A LONG TIME ON THE SUBJECT BUT COULD NOT AGREE. THE REBELS ARE EXPECTED BACK HERE EVERY DAY & I SHOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF THEY WOULD PAY US A VISIT. THERE WAS A BAND OF THEM NUMBERING 1500 AT WINCHESTER ON YESTERDAY. THERE IS A GENTLEMAN WAITING FOR THIS LETTER. YOU WILL EXCUSE ITS SHORTNESS. LOVE TO ALL, AFFECTIONATELY YOUR SON J.F. MOORE.COL. TEVIS SAYS I MUST WEAR MY SWORD. IF YOU HAVE A CHANCE SEND IT UP BY SOME TRUSTY FELLOW WITH THE STRAPS OF UNCLE TOMS SWORD UPON IT. J.F. MOORE.TELL WILLIAM I NEVER CAN THANK HIM TOO MUCH FOR HIS HANDSOME PRESENT. THEY CAME IN GOOD TIME FOR OUR NIGHT MARCHES & SLOW MOVEMENTS --- REQUIRE WARM CLOTHING.2) NOTE # 2 (WRITTEN TO HIS MOTHER ON A LONG STRIP OF BLUE PAPER):DEAR MOTHER, YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW WE ALL ENJOYED THE CHICKENS, CAKE, ETC. I RETURN WITH ? THE BASKET FOR A REINFORCEMENT ON SOME FUTURE OCCASION. I SUPPOSE YOU HAVE ALREADY SEEN MY HORSE --- ISN'T HE A BEAUTY --- I AM SURE THERE IS NO HORSE IN CAMP TO COMPARE.
