army. It was late in the day, and we kept up the pursuit for ten miles, until after dark, when we went into camp in a field, around a sink-hole that afforded water for our horses, after achieving one of the most complete as well as brilliant victories of the war.

ong the soldiers. I handed, this morning, to an aged soldier, the tract, The sick and the Physician. That means the Saviour, said he; Oh, that he were my Saviour! Many of my company have become Christians, said another, and I too wish to learn what I must do to be saved. He requested me to visit him, and aid him in securing life everlasting. February 17, 1863. After getting my tracts, hymn-books, etc., I supplied the Sixty-third, Fifty-first and Fifty-eighth Regiments, and also Derrick's and Clarke's Battalions and Brian's Battery. The brave men received the tracts eagerly and thankfully, and were always pleased with an appointment for preaching or prayer. We held meetings in Monroe, and at the narrows of New river, and at Thorn Spring, near Dublin, where four artillery companies are now in camp. Never have I met with more patient and attentive audiences. One and another would inquire for Testaments, and express a resolution to lead a new life. With the batteries we

considered so trifling a matter, yet very important because it had behind it a very important principle; the fact that the time had come in which women were bound to study, assist, and stand by each other. I quoted Christ's saying about the mustard seed. Miss Barton's mission to Armenia I called a mustard seed, and one which would have very important results. January 27. ... Wrote a few lines to Mrs. Charles A. Babcock, Oil City, Pennsylvania, for a woman's issue of a paper called the Derrick. She wishes me to say what I thought would be the result of the women's edition fad. I said that one result would be to drive to desperation those who receive letters, asking contributions to these issues. February 9. Another inspired sermon from C. G. Ames. Miss Page asked, Why is he so earnest? What does it mean? I replied, He is in one of those waves of inspiration which come sometimes. The angel has certainly troubled the pool and we can go to it for healing. Returning home, I

t was not long before we were all sleeping soundly. The next day we remained in that position, but the morning after I received orders to take my company to the foot of the hill and occupy the picket line near the creek. Captain Pratt, from Derrick's battalion, was on my left, and Captain Swann, from ours (Edgar's), was on my right. The men concealed themselves behind trees, stumps and logs, or constructed hasty rifle-pits, and the enemy's picket line being on the opposite side of the creut two hundred killed and missing. That's all of us, you know, but we aren't hardly worth counting down here among all these men. After talking over the situation and trying to arrange for some plan of concerted action with Captain Pratt, of Derrick's battalion, whose company was also in line on my left, we parted, and soon after, squatting in my rifle-pit, I was fast asleep, nor did I awake till the noise of an exploding shell near aroused me to find the sun shining brightly in my face as
