Civil War Letter 1861 Skunk's Misery Potomac River Rebels North Pittston Maine 1 For Sale

Civil War Letter 1861 Skunk's Misery Potomac River Rebels North Pittston Maine 1

An original Civil War letter including the envelope written by a soldier. At the end of the letter he does not sign his name, he just writes, Good night. I assume this is a complete letter. At the top of the letter it looks like he writes, Skunk's Misery Sept 29th. On the top left there is a patriotic illustration with an American flag. The envelope has the send to address of North Pittston, Maine. It looks like the envelope has a 1861 postmark. Some of his writing is a little hard to read, I translated the best I could. The letter reads:

Dear Uncle

I received a letter from you last night also one from Cylena...........we have nothing but guard duty to do now as you will see we have moved from Barnestown since I wrote you last. I gave this place the best name that I could think of that is the most suitable. We are here encamped on the banks of the Potomac river watching for something to shoot at in the shape of a Rebel but we have not seen anything yet of any account. The pickets amuse themselves by poping away at each other but they don't do much damage. The people around here are about all secessionsits but they try to hide it all they can but they will let the cat out of the bag once in awhile. Sometimes I think that we shant have any fighting to do then again it looks as though we should have a plenty of it to do. Some of our officers say that we shall spend Christmas at home but I don't suck everything down that they say: I only hope that it may be so for I am getting tired of this kind of life.................Good night.

Theletter is in good condition there is a small piece missing which does not affect the reading, the envelope has wear and pieces missing.
