e interest. That God Almighty may be your shield and your exceeding great reward is the constant prayer of your loving father. Ro. Ryland. We clip, without comment, from files of religious newspapers, the following items as illustrating the subject of this chapter, as well as other phases of soldier-life in the early days of the war. Hon. J. L. M. Curry, in a letter published by the South-western Baptist, states that for two months a weekly prayer-meeting has been kept up in Talladega, Alabama. When the hour comes, at 9 o'clock on every Thursday morning, the doors of every business house are closed, and the house is usually filled with sincere worshippers who congregate to pray for our country. The meetings are alternately held in the three church houses. Says the Christian Index: Unconverted young men have written home that they daily read their Bibles, and are seeking preparation for the judgment. Some religious soldiers state that such is the pious influence in their

he first week, so as not to be able to work. W. N. Chaudoin. A lady from the vicinity of Gettysburg, whose letter, describing the sufferings of the Confederate wounded left on that field of blood, appears in the Albion, Liverpool, England, says: There were two brothers, one a colonel, the other a captain, lying side by side, and both wounded. They had a Bible between them. Rev. J. J. D. Renfroe, in a private letter from the Army of Northern Virginia, to a member of his Church, Talladega, Alabama, says: Were it not for separation from my dear family, I never was so happily situated in my life. I would rather be in the army than anywhere else. O, it is transporting to see the earnestness with which men enter upon the cause of religion, and the primitive familiarity and simplicity with which they approach each other and the preachers on the subject. And then there is scarcely an hour, but some poor inquiring soul comes to my tent to get instruction. I never saw the like of i

5 church-members, 5 not, as near as I remember. This, of course, is to some extent an exceptional case; but I only know of one company which had a greater proportion of non-professors killed. I know, my dear brother, you will consider these meagre facts; but I hope they will be of some service to you. I wish you a hearty God-speed and a splendid success in your work. Yours fraternally, Chas. H. Dobbs. From Rev. Dr. Renfroe, Baptist, chaplain Tenth Alabama Regiment. Talladega, Alabama, January 31, 1867. Dear Brother Jones: In attempting to give you some account of the religious character of Wilcox's old brigade, in the army of Northern Virginia, I find that I am entirely dependent upon my memory. I loaned my notes of events to a brother, who now informs me that he cannot lay his hand on them, having mislaid them. The Tenth Alabama was the regiment of which I was chaplain. The brigade was composed of the Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh and Fourteenth Alabama

f their clerks, or a teamster, or a permanently detailed soldier in the various departments, to make a profession of religion; while generals, colonels, majors, captains, lieutenants, and privates in the ranks, by the score, the hundred and the thousand have sought and secured the pearl of great price in the army. Exposure to danger and providential escapes have a great tendency to drive the shelterless soul to Christ for refuge. I preached several times at Montevallo, and once at Talladega, Alabama; at the latter place I raised a collection amounting to $143, for the Association, and at the former place $116, to furnish the soldiers with Testaments, $100 of which was from Mr. Sharp. During the month I have distributed of the Army and Navy Herald,10,000 copies. Soldiers' hymn books,2,000 Soldiers' papers,600 3,000 copies of the Herald on hand. Our thanks are due to Major Bransford, Chief of Transportation for the Army of Tennessee, and his affable clerks, for the a
