Camping at Mason's Hill is interesting and exciting — not a day passing away but a few Yankee pickets "bite the dust." Whilst I was there, in one day eight were gathered by our boys, who keep a sharp lookout for the chaps, and give them a dead shot on sight — Several prisoners have been sent to General Davis' institution at Richmond for safe keeping. By the way, we will soon have a Yankee army on hand. On the morning of the 30th a large Federal camp, about two miles from Alexandria, broke up and retired, thinking, probably, the "rebels" were getting too close for comfort.--They built a large fire, the smoke of which served to cover them as they broke up their camp.

Mason's Hill is a very high and commanding position, and about two miles from Munson's Hill, both of which are now fortified and in possession of the "rebels." In a straight line from Mason's Hill stands the Capitol at Washington, and which can readily be seen with the naked eye Whilst beholding the dome of the Capitol, I feel like one looking upon the "promised land," where shortly, I hope, "may our possessions be."
