OCTOBER 4 1862Dear mother it is now sometime since I wrote to you and I have not received a letter yet so I will write another Friday 2nd we left camp Baker and traveled a great many miles by boat and railroad and about 20 miles on foot and we are now united with the old 43rd about 12 miles from Hagerstown near the potomac River in Maryland
We arrived here in good health and spirits yesterday we are under marching orders and we are near the rebels so I do not know how soon we will be called upon to meet the enemy but as volunteered to fight for my country and the glorious stars and stripes I am NOT alarm in the least
Captain Burhans has promoted me to the rank of corporal and I suppose you are not sorry to hear it I did not ask for it so I suppose the captain put in the one he thought the best qualified for the office I suppose you would like to hear an account of our journey so I will tell you last Friday 3rd we started from Camp Baker with rations of hard crackers and coffee and sugar for 2 days and we head to Alexandria we then took the boat for Washington we stayed at Washington two days and nights and started for Fredericksburg Sunday night in arrived there Monday evening and we then marched through Harpers Ferry and camped for the night on the ground
In the morning we started for the old regiment and marched about 15 miles and encamped on the ground where a great battle was fought a short time ago (REFERENCE TO ANTIETAM) in the morning we started for the old regiment and arrived here about noon but I do not know how long we shall stay. The old 43rd of whom there are about 250(or 2500?) were very glad to see us and they say that when Stonewall Jackson sees the 43rd coming he will lay down arms and surrender with out firing a shot
To show their warm feeling for us they gave a loud shouts of applause when we entered camp as I have not much time to write you must right to Alice Hoag and tell her I am well and give her and all the rest of folks in Saratoga my love if you have not received my letters tell Patti and Emma I send them my love I wrote a letter to cousin John van Allen the sometime I wrote to you before when I have finished this letter I will write one to Uncle John Becker and direct it to Albany in care of lawyer then Allen so you can get it if the don't when you write again please tell me when to direct my letter so Isaac DeForest will receive it
