They will have to submit to the will of the majority in the Union, or go to everlasting smash out of it. My own idea is, that, however the South may fume, fret, and bluster, just now, they will be very calm before next March. . . . . November 13.—Papers still full of Southern secession nonsense. . . . . December 5.—I cannot feel that this great confederacy is to be destroyed just yet, and I don't like to contemplate the fearful ruin that must overtake the South if they pursue th<

If I had a whole pair of breeches in my regiment at Lexington, I don't know it; but I learned there that bravery did not depend on good clothes. I am sorry I have not written to you before, but I have been so busy I have not thought of it. Best love to all, and believe me, Yours, as ever. Army of West Tennessee, 12 miles southwest Savannah, and 18 miles from Corinth, Miss., March 31, 1862. Dear Frank,—In camp again, with a good regiment and well equipped. We are in General Prentiss's Division (twelve regiments), and I command the leading brigade. As we are the left centre division, we expect rough work.

We arrived here on the 28th, and have a very pleasant camp,—the boys as live

His letters, after communication was reopened, g State in the Confederacy, and are now in front of Savannah, with our water base established, and the cracker ing opposition up to the present time, and I think Savannah will be ours soon. . . . .
