in afternoon and heard the experience of soldiers to Chaplain Lattimore, Baptist, and saw him and Chaplain——baptize fifteen soldiers in a pond in which the Federals threw three shells the day before, none, however during the baptizing. Chaplain's badge. The badge adopted by the Chaplains' Association of the Army of Tennessee was the Maltese cross, worn on the collar or lappel of their coats. Last days with the army of Tennessee. In March, 1865, we were at Camp Direction, at Hamburg, S. C., across the river from Augusta, Georgia. There I met Chaplains Brown, Forty-sixth Georgia, and Daniel, Fifty-seventh Georgia, Gregory and Hanks and Rev. J. P. McFerrin, who had recovered of his wounds sufficiently to preach to the soldiers. We had frequent camp services there until our march through South Carolina, via Edgefield and Laurens' Court-House and Spartanburg and Union Districts and across the Saluda, Enoree and Broad Rivers to Chesterville. This march across the State we ma

pply, and other troops around Augusta and on the railroads, I had 16,000 papers to bring through on the wagon train of the dates November 15, 1864, January 5, 12, 19, 26, February 2, 9, 16, 23, and March 2, 1865. Through much difficulty I succeeded in getting the papers on the ordnance train, the teamsters kindly taking a package of one thousand papers on each wagon after being heavily loaded with ammunition. Owing to the high water, and the bridges having been washed away on the Enoree, Tyger and Little Rivers, our route was rather circuitous,, and the bad condition of the roads rendered our progress slow. We came through the Districts of Edgefield, Newberry, Laurens, Spartanburg, Union, York and Chester, to Chesterville, South Carolina, by the wagon train, a distance of one hundred and fifty miles. Two weeks were consumed in the trip. At Chesterville we took the train for Raleigh, North Carolina. The Heralds now on hand have been brought two hundred miles by Government wagons

ring which time that place was the base of supplies for our main army. Soldiers returning to their commands stopped at the Camp of Direction, while the sick, going to the rear, stopped at the General Receiving and Distributing Hospital, and several cavalry commands were still remaining in the vicinity. I preached here several times to good congregations, representing almost every regiment in the Army of Tennessee; many came forward as seekers of salvation, while the officers in command at Palmetto showed marked respect for the cause. I also preached at the reserve camp of the First, Third, Fifth, Eighth, and Tenth Confederate Cavalry, and once in Newnan, distributing each day hymn-books, Testaments, and papers to the soldiers en route for the main army, and those in the hospitals and camps. When our General Hospital, Transportation Office, and Military Post-office were ordered to Blue Mountain (as a temporary base of supplies), I shipped the supplies of the Association to Selma,

We descended Big Hill into the Blue Grass Region of Kentucky. When we reached Rodgersville the battle between Rodgersville and Richmond was over, and we saw Salem church and yard full of wounded Federals. General Kirby Smith gained the most complete victory over the Federals here that I knew won during the war. General Pat. CleburnRodgersville and Richmond was over, and we saw Salem church and yard full of wounded Federals. General Kirby Smith gained the most complete victory over the Federals here that I knew won during the war. General Pat. Cleburne here gained great renown. Our loss was between four and five hundred killed and wounded—Federals twice as great, and then four thousand prisoners taken. Three-fourths of our wounded were Tennesseeans. Among the number I met was Rev. A. M. Kerr, my preceptor when a youth, and for many years pastor of Pleasant Hill Cumberland Presbyterian Church, in Giles county, Tennessee, near where I was reared. September 2. Gave the day to looking after the wounded, Confederate and Federal. Septemb

f their clerks, or a teamster, or a permanently detailed soldier in the various departments, to make a profession of religion; while generals, colonels, majors, captains, lieutenants, and privates in the ranks, by the score, the hundred and the thousand have sought and secured the pearl of great price in the army. Exposure to danger and providential escapes have a great tendency to drive the shelterless soul to Christ for refuge. I preached several times at Montevallo, and once at Talladega, Alabama; at the latter place I raised a collection amounting to $143, for the Association, and at the former place $116, to furnish the soldiers with Testaments, $100 of which was from Mr. Sharp. During the month I have distributed of the Army and Navy Herald,10,000 copies. Soldiers' hymn books,2,000 Soldiers' papers,600 3,000 copies of the Herald on hand. Our thanks are due to Major Bransford, Chief of Transportation for the Army of Tennessee, and his affable clerks, for the a

ictory sermon for the soldiers. I preached my first sermon to the soldiers, I think, at Winchester, late in April, 1861, and my last at Rock Hill, South Carolina, Sunday night, April 23, 1865. I spent a couple of weeks with Chaplain Whitten with his kindred in Newberry, South Carolina. Came alone on horseback to Macon, Georgia, where I was paroled, May 23, just a month after the surrender of the army; met some of the escort there of President Davis, who were with him at his capture at Irvington, Georgia. Of course, it was a hoax about the President having on his wife's clothing when captured. Those who took the President at night I presume did not know the difference between a gentleman's robe de chambre and a lady's apparel. Some time was spent with Chaplain Bolton, of Tennessee, with our true, tried army friends at their homes in Barnesville and Thomaston, and elsewhere in Pike and Upson Counties, Georgia, and I mounted my faithful gray horse, which brought me from North Car

s were all busy so far as I can recall. August 24. Visited the sick at Ringgold, and then to Catoosa Springs, where there were a large number of convalescents, the most pleasant place for the sick to rest and recuperate that I have seen. I preached to them day and night during my stay, and there were penitents, professions, and profuse praise by the pardoned and happy Christian soldiers. Then I was at Spring Place, Dalton, The Rock, Thomaston, Barnesville, and a camp-meeting in Upson county, Georgia. Then to La Fayette, and on to Chickamauga. Could not preach on Sunday, September 13, our division was marching; but preached on the night of 15th, and Dr. McFerrin preached the night of the 16th. September 17. We marched from La Fayette, Georgia, in the direction of Chattanooga; passed Rock Spring Church and Pea-Vine, near which we bivouacked. While resting on my blanket in the shade, Lem. Robins, of our Thirty-seventh Georgia, came near me, and I asked him to take a seat o

n by Bro. Tribble, six soldiers knelt for prayer; my twenty-seventh birthday. December 3. Bro. Bolton preached at night; I followed by exhortation; there were four penitents, and Sergeant-Major E. F. Shropshire, of Thirty-ninth Georgia, Ringgold, Georgia, made a happy profession of faith in Christ. The first public profession of religion I witnessed in the army. December 4. I preached at night; 7 penitents, 2 conversions. Captain Brady, Thirty-ninth Georgia, preached the last sermonecord of the extent of the revival in the Army of Tennessee around Chattanooga in July and August, 1863. I have no doubt that it was general, as chaplains and missionaries were all busy so far as I can recall. August 24.

s marching and countermarching of our troops left little for the chaplains to do save to administer to the wants of the sick, and to keep up with their commands. While our commanding general was engaged in inaugurating a governor for the State of Kentucky, the Federal general was massing his troops at different points with the view of cutting off his retreat south. These movements resulted in the battle at Perryville, under auspices singularly unfavorable to our forces. After this battle, nt, of which he took the command, and Rev. J. A. Edmondson resigned and returned home. The five preachers mentioned, and Rev. Geo. D. Guiner, Lieutenant Fourth Tennessee, were members of the Tennessee Conference. Our brigade marched into Eastern Kentucky under General Zollicoffer, who was unfortunate in both encounters under his command, and the noble-hearted man lost his life the first year of the war at Fishing Creek, Kentucky.

are yet a large number of inquirers. The moral tone of the regiment seems rapidly changing for the better. Rev. T. C. Stanley, to whom we have already referred, reported favorably from the Forty-sixth Georgia Regiment. More than two hundred were enrolled in the Association, and the movement was heartily seconded by the field, staff, and line officers. Colonel Colquitt, Major Spears, Quartermaster Leonard, and others, gave aid and counsel to the chaplain. Among the troops at Columbus, Mississippi, a work of much interest began, which was interrupted in its progress by their removal to Jackson. The chaplain laboring there, Rev W. H. Smith, sent forth an earnest call to the home churches for help. Brethren! ministers! are you asleep? Do you not hear the cries of your countrymen calling to you from every part of the land? The soldiers feel their need of salvation, and are crying for the gospel! And will you withhold it from them? Awake! arise! gird yourselves with the whol
