he best. The officers, especially Generals Jackson and Early, have modified military rules for our accommodation. I have just learned that General A. P. Hill's Division enjoys as rich a dispensation of God's Spirit as General Early's. In General Pickett's Division, also, there are said to be revivals of religion. I give also the closing part of one of my own letters to the Religious Herald, written at this time: But I have saved the best for the last. There is a very interesting rh Carolina, twenty-five are reported as having made their peace with God. A quartermaster in Armistead's Brigade writes me that a good work has commenced there, and that nothing is so much needed as men to preach Jesus.

Bernard Phillips, our colporter at Winder Hospital, informs me that a precious reviv

When I joined it, it was attached to Armistead's Brigade, Pickett's Division, First Corps, and it continued in this position to the surrender, under different commanders. General Armistead was killed at Gettysburg. Our next gember, 1864, I conducted a meeting of great interest and power near the Howlett House, in a chapel built by the Twenty-eighth and Nineteenth Virginia Regiments, of Pickett's Division. It lasted two weeks and about thirty professed faith, some of whom were killed soon thereafter. Good order always prevailed, and the best attentiomy (about ten months), and on so limited a field, that I have but little of interest to narrate. I was chaplain of the Ninth Virginia Infantry, Barton's Brigade, Pickett's Division, Colonel Phillips commanding. I preached to my own regiment every Sabbath when it was in my power; also often to the whole brigade, and sometimes to

The Army of Tennessee remained encamped on the south and east of Chattanooga, from Lookout Mountain to the base and crest of Missionary Ridge near two months, or until the 25th of November, 1863. Rev. Mr. Stacey, of Newnan, Georgia, a Presbyterian minister, preached for us here, and I preached for the Kentucky Brigade, exchanging places occasionally with Professor Pickett, of Bethany College, Christian Church, who was with the Kentucky Brigade.

McFerrin was there, terribly mangled; lamed for life. Mr. Parnell, of the Fifty-eighth Alabama, desti
