dc.description.transcription(Two pages, front and back. One sheet.) rear guard. They throwed some shells at us but hurt nobody. On Christmas day they were sheling us with two little pieces. After that they did not interrupt us any more. We had two men by the name of Runy and Davis killed in our co. and two wounded by the name of Ditto and Basye and two Burny and Peeples surrendered and one missing by the name of Renfro. It is getting late and I have to write by a light wood fire so I will have to close my letter soon. We are all in good health Pete is unhurt all the limestone boys come out safe. Ben. Kenady is here. His wound is not entirely well yet he says Joe. Bake. is doing well – he is at an excelent place in Alabama. Ben. is going to try to try to get a furlough and come home – Joe. will do the same when he gets able to come to the Regt. I have not still heard anything from Cy. I hope there is nothing the matter with him that we cannot har of him: I would like to hear from Jim when you write. Give my love to all the family and relations and all enquiring friends and to your selves reserve my best affections. Give my special love to Father and mother (Page 2) With these hastily and badly writen lines I remain your brother Sam.. N.B. I had like to have forgot to say a happy new-year and do,nt know if it is not a mockery to say it when a desolating war is all over our land mining the country and killing its thousand daily and perhaps causing tears to flow from the eyes of many mother and sisters and wives and lovers.. on account of the loved ones lost in this most cruel of all wars waged by an unrelenting foe for the purpose of conquest and empire. I will say but little on this subject.. but God grant that there may be a peace soon so that both friend and foe may go home and enjoy themselves in peace and pln- ty. But if the Feds. will have war they can have it to the bloody end for we are determined to fight them until all our means are exhausted and every man killed before we will submit to their tyrannicle rule. I will now have to close. Send this to Tea..as soon as you get it. A new-years gift to all and to all a short fare well Sam
