Vol, St. Albans, Sept. 15th, 61. Writing to his wife, in part, “Here we are at last in camp on this rainy Sabbath morning. We arrived here yesterday afternoon about 2 o’clock. We are camped in a meadow about 1 ½ miles north of St. Albans village. We have some very good tents for it rained very hard all night, and we did not get wet – but a very little. I certainly slept better than I have for a week. ... There is one thing Martha that I must tell you that you will not want to hear and that is that I shall not probably come home before we leave. I think we should go this week to Washington. ... Since writing the above we have had different orders and shall not probably leave till the last of the week and if you can get these things of mine done so as to send them Wednesday by express, you may forward them. ....”
