We can get no mail from that direction...We have been very much reinforced for the last week. We received last week 900 Tennessee troops. Yesterday & today we received 2 Regiments from Georgia, about 1900 strong. We have now about 13 to 14,000 men at this post. We are all getting tired of staying here without a fight. They are all anxious to fight & get home. We had several little skirmishes....At a little known town viz. Philippi out in the Western part of the state, we lost about 9 men killed, about 70 on their side...Don’t be uneasy about me, my darling. God protects us every where...” More. Fine condition.
