Saunders has been sick for the last two weeks but is now better. We have but twenty privates for duty in our company. The sick is in Petersburg and Richmond. We have to submit to consumption or conscription ? it is a rough pill to take. London is our capt., ? is first lieutenant, myself second, Jim Rogers third. We are now picketing all the time. We have nothing to eat and nothing to cook in the whole peninsula from Yorktown to Richmond. John, get all the men you can to come to our company. Tell doctor Hedgepeth to come with you. I have seen lots of yankees. Our lines have been from two to eight hundred yards apart. The soldiers on each side devils each other. The yankees ask men how they like consumption or conscription?. There are good many of them marching to Richmond every day. J.M. Saunders says bring him one pair of pants, two shirts, cotton. Cotton he prefers. I hope we will get the chance to come home some time in the summer. George is sick. A.J. Riggsbee is dead. He died in Petersburg. Tell John Fox I think we have no difficulty in his staying at home sometimes yet. Write to me to Richmond, VA 15th NC Troops General Cobbs Brigade care of Captain W.L. London.
