Co. K, Stanly county, Captain Moody.

You will see that most of us are “Mountain boys,” and we trust that we do not disgrace the home from which we come. It would afford us great pleasure and satisfaction to have for our leader an officer so well and favorably known for bravery, courtesy and professional attainments as Lieutenant-Colonel Lane, of the gallant “Bethel” regiment. Permit us to express our personal hope that we may receive a favorable reply as soon as possible and to subscribe ourselves,

Your obedient servants,

S. M. Stowe, Major Commanding Post, Wm. J. Montgomery, Captain Co. D., G. B. Johnston, First Lieut. Co. G., Committee in behalf of the Twenty-eighth Regiment.

Richmond, October 14, 1861.
My Dear Colonel:--By General Anderson I send you the best sword I could find in Richmond; also a saddle, bridle, &c., by express.

It is a present from the old First Regiment, as a slight token of their kind feelings and regards for you both personally and officially. Captains Avery and McDowell, Lieutenant Lewis and myself were appointed a committee to procure the articles, and I was deputed to proceed to Richmond and purchase them. I have left with your sister a pair of very neat goblets, thinking that you would prefer having them there to keeping them with you. * * * * *

I am, sincerely your friend,

camp Gregg, Va., March 28, 1863.
Brigadier-General James H. Lane, Commanding Fourth Brigade:
I have the honor to announce to you in behalf of my brother officers of this brigade, that on Monday next, the 30th inst., at 11 o'clock A. M., we will be pleased to present you with a sword, sash, saddle and bridle, as a token of respect for you as our commander, and high appreciation of your many gentlemanly and soldierly qualities.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

Sam. D. Lowe, Colonel Commanding Twenty-eighth N. C. Regiment, and Chairman of Committee.
