orrespondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Camp Cooper. Oct. 31, 1861.
Not leaving camp as early as I expected, I send you letter number two.
Sunday morning there was a grand review.
Col. Jones took his position on his peculiar colored horse almost a clay color; while all the companies that were not out on picket passed around, first, in platoons, and then in columns of two abreast.
There are some very fine horses in this regiment.
After review we had preaching in camp by Major Danney Ball, former Chaplain to this regiment; but he has now buttoned up his clerical coat with Virginia buttons, put a star on each side of his collar, and gone on to General Stuart's staff.
He preached in the Commissary's tent with his audience on the sunny side — The wind was blowing which made it some-what disagreeable, but the men were all respectful and attentive, and nearly all joined in the singing.
After dinner we accepted an invitation to dine at General Stuart's head quarters.
