patriotic lettersheet."You need not be concerned about my health as it is better than when I was at home.
My appetite it first rate""We have the usual army rations, the bead and meat all fresh""The wind commences to blow from the North West ... but let it blow we are comfortable.""There is all that are not on guard and they don't have to be out but 2 hours at a time.""There was no drilling today but we tried to have a dress parade at 4 1/2 o'clock but the wind was so strong that no orders could be heard.""We are now under command of Major Avery, a young man having a most military appearance
of any officer in the regiment.""One week ago last Saturday we marched down to Gettysburg to celebrate the taking of Fort Donelson."This is a really fine letter showing the life of a soldier.I will carefully protect and mail the letter within 1 day of receiving PayPal.
