Good Confederate officer's letter, 3 1/2pp., 8vo., by 1st Lt. Romulus L. Cox, Co. K, 52nd North Carolina Infantry, "Picket camp on the Rapidan, March 4, 1864, to his brother, reading, in part: "-Wm. had left and gone to his Regt. I fear he will not stand camp life long before he will done again - I was in hopes he would get to stay with you some time yet. I want you to stay there if you possibly can as long as the war last. I know it is a hard place to stay and very confining but is much easier than to be in the field with a musket and knapsack - and have to fight in the bargain. We had been after the Yankees all this week. They have been making some pretty bold raids this week, have cut the R. Road in several places between here an Richmond. The train hasn't come up from Richmond since last Monday - the army is scattered from here to Richmond now. Kilpatrick's cavalry got in one mile of Richmond again had a pretty hard fight there last Tuesday with the convalescents & city battalion, etc. - there has been a general stir up about here this week certain - I had a furlough in my pocket all this week ready to start home as soon as Walker gets back. He is 12 days behind time. I recon he is at Richmond waiting for the train to come up - I am off for home this morning. The train came up this evening and brought Walker all right - R. L. C."
