I bring up the rear as Fourth Corporal. May 5th, 1861.--Arrived at Randolph this morning at 11 o'clock. Raining all day. Was detained on board the boat as Corporal of the guard, which was very fortunate for me, as the company, after marching up a very steep hill to their camping ground, about one mile from the river, ren; but the alarm proved false, and we returned to our camp with nobody hurt. Received a box of cakes from home, for which my thanks are due to my excellent mother. May 20th.--This morning the Third Regiment of Tennessee volunteers arrived at Randolph. There are now about three thousand troops stationed here under the command of General Jno. L. T. Sneed. May 24th, 1861.--To-night we sleep on our arms, ready to meet the foe at a moment's notice.

June 6th.--To day John Trigg and I agreed to read a chapter in the Bible every night. Am reavariance with Southern customs and manners. The morning of the 4th July dawned bright and clear on the tented fields of Randolph. At eleven o'clock the band of the Fourth Tennessee Regiment marched to the Headquarters of the Thirteenth Tennessee, pg preparations for our march. It is now reduced to almost a certainty that we are going to Missouri. The last scene at Randolph is a sublime one. I am writing by the brilliant light of a bonfire made from dry boxes and barrels, the remnants of thee light of a thousand fires, they take up the line of march for the front. July 27th.--This morning found us still at Randolph. Left the camp at ten o'clock, and waited on the river bank for about five hours, for the steamer W. M. Morrison. Left
serious result. Finally the forces of the enemy were greatly increased, and began to occupy both banks of the river, and also the river above and below the island, when a portion of our force retired, and about April 7th the remainder surrendered. The fleet, on April 12th, proceeded next to Fort Pillow, about one hundred eighty miles below Island No.10, and a bombardment was commenced the next day. This was continued without effect until the night of June 4th, when both Forts Pillow and Randolph, the latter some twelve miles below the former, were evacuated—these positions having become untenable in consequence of the withdrawal of our forces from Corinth and the adjacent portion of Tennessee. Nothing now remained to oppose the enemy's fleet but our gunboats at Memphis, which were, say, seventy miles farther down the river. The gallantry and efficiency displayed by our improvised river navy at New Madrid and Island No.10 gave rise to hopes scarcely justified by the number of ou

On the 24th, the whole of General Rust's command—less one regiment left at Randolph—was ordered to Corinth via Memphis. The object was to counteract, as much as possible, by additional forces, whatever movement was planned by the enemy, in cons your obedient servant, G. T. Beauregard, Gen. Comdg. Nor was General Beauregard unmindful of the importance of strengthening and increasing the armament of Randolph, as appears by his letter to Commodore Pinckney, under date of April 24th, 1862.
