War-date Confederate officer's letter, 2 1/2pp. 8vo., written (on captured Yankee patriotic "Union" stationery) by Lieut. Mann Page [WIA Cedar Mountain, Va., Aug. 9, 62], 21st Virginia Infantry, "Camp on Dr. Gaines Farm," [Virginia], June 28, 1862, to "My Dear Mrs. Mosby," reading, in part: "I write a few lines to let you know that up to the present time I am well and safe. Please if my uncle Mr. Randolph is in town let him know…that I am well. I hope to see you all when this fight is over, but the ned is not yet [here] and many of us may yet follow our Brave and Glorious dead. It was hot work. My Regt. was exposed to the enemy's shells late in the evening but no one was killed. We were the reserve and got up just as the last grand charge was made. Laid on our arms all night on the extreme front of our lines but were not disturbed. We have done nothing but remain in position. If anything should happen to me I want to be taken to your house and should the worst happen tell my uncle to place me on that little island in Hollywood [Cemetery, Richmond]…I am so anxious here about all my friends in the army. We all have our parts to play and cannot go about to look after one another…about the fight…all goes well up to the present time. Good grant it may so continue. Fighting is nothing new with Jackson's army…direct Mann Page Adt. 21st Va. Vol…2nd Brig'd. Jackson's division." Light soiling, else VG.
