, in Christ, yours, J. H. Colton. From Rev. James McDowell, Presbyterian, chaplain Palmetto Sharpshooters. Manning, South Carolina, March 27, 1867. Rev. J. Wm. Jones: Dear Brother: I was chaplain of the Palmetto Sharpshooters, Jenkins's Brigade; and after he was killed in the battle of the Wilderness, Bratton's Brigade, Longstreet's Corps. I became chaplain in July, 1862, and continued so until the surrender of the army at Appomattox Court House. I usually had the followiains and lower officers were pious, and exerted a good influence, but none of higher rank than captain in my regiment. Some of the other regiments were much more blessed in this respect, having pious colonels, who exerted a good influence. General Jenkins (our brigadier) was a professor of religion; General Bratton, who succeeded him, was not.

d believe on him. He left with me a letter for his betrothed in Cā€”ā€”, Alabama. July 28. Generals Stewart and Loring were among the wounded to-day. I was with each of them. Talked to Colonel Crook, who is terribly wounded. He testifies that he has been trying to be a true Christian in the army, and all is right living or dying. This gallant young Tennesseean talks like a true Christian-a member of the Methodist Church, Twenty-eighth Tennessee Regiment. East Point, August 8, 1864. S. W. Jenkins, Company E, Fifty-eighth Alabama, is fearfully riddled with balls, but as he lay beneath a little fly dying this hot dusty day his eye was very bright. I grasped his hand and said, How is it now with you, my dear boy? He pressed my hand closely, and said, I am all right, parson; have not seen a dark day for two years; can't doubt now, and I thank God for it. Write my mother that I am mortally wounded, but I will meet her in heaven. He had attracted my attention by his eager interest i
