The "Band" was detailed to bear the wounded from the field and we did a good deal of it too. I had the fun of taking several shots at the blue coats. Our regiment supplied themselves with an outfit of oil cloth blankets, knapsacks, haversacks, and a number of gold and silver watches. I have donned a new Yankee suit. I saw John Walton this morning, he went through safe. Well,
I have tired your patience and will close. Write soon, direct to Lake City, Fla., care of regiment and brigade. Love to all.
