Not a cart, wagon, or dray is to be seen. Save the army wagon, not a carriage enlivens the streets. The thoroughfares are miry with filth, and the general impression upon entering the town is that you have driven into a huge livery stable, not particularly well kept. Nearly every door is closed and few persons are seeape since the capture of the place. I shall endeavor to write you in a few days from some point nearer the army. J.

Dear Mother: I am here a prisoner of war and mortally wounded. I can live but a few hours more at farthest. I was shot fifty yards from the enemy's line. They have been exceedingly kind to me.
