Falmouth, Va. (Virginia, United States) (search for this): article 10
a position commanding a full view of almost the entire line of battle. An artillery duel might be carried on here for a fortnight without any definite result. What we want to see is the infantry cross the river. We expect a most lively time then. The last battle of Manassas has been called the "most beautiful fight of the war, but a fight here will be more beautiful still, in my judgment, as well by reason of the result as the position of the parties. There is a ford on the left, near Falmouth, where infantry might cross, but the banks are so steep on the other side that artillery cannot be brought over. Yesterday I saw a Yankee brigade on dress parade, Most of the camps are a mile or so back from the river, among the pines, as indicated by the smoke from their fires; but there are a few regiments nearer the river, in ravines and clumps of trees. They come daily down to the river bank. One of our men asked one of the Yankees, the other day, who was in command? He replied

d one of the Yankees, the other day, who was in command? He replied "That d — d curly-head Burnside." I understand the Federal are deserting daily. Some say the main body have gone down the river — for what purpose I cannot imagine, I first saw the light on the banks of the Rappahannock, and know the river pretty well. Light artillery and sharpshooters will be of great service if the enemy expect to use transports on the river, as I presume they will be compelled to do, the railroad to Aquia Creek not being sufficient. If the enemy will not consent to cross so long as we oppose him, General Lee may invite him over by falling back a little. Burnside, it seems, is pledged to advance, and if he delay it much longer he will get stuck in the mud. I have my doubts about the crossing or attempting to cross here; but others, better informed, think he will. Our army is in good condition, the men being rapidly supplied with shoes and blankets.

Socks are in great demand, In one company of 80 Lien, 31, had no socks. Friends at home should supply the demand. The Government has done admirably well in the supply of the heavier articles of clothing, and if Gov. Letcher's advice is taken, the others will come. Since I last wrote you, Col S. D. Lee, of South Carolina commander of an artillery battalion, has been ordered to Vicksburg and promoted to a Brigadier; and Lieutenant-Colonel E P. Alexander, late on Gen. Lee's staff, has been put in command of this battalion While the battalion regrets the transfer of Col. (now General) Lee to an other command, yet we think he has been sent to the right place.
