The credulity of woman on the subject of being loved, is very great; they often mistake a common liking for a particular regard, and on this foundation build up a castle in the air and fill it with it with all the [  ?  ] of their bright hopes and confiding loved and where some start- ing fact destroys the vision they feel as if the whole oration were a blank to them, and they the most in [  ?  ] of woman It is safer to be very [  ?  ] on the subject of being loved; but if you do make the mistake, take all the blame to yourself and save your [  ?  ] by [  ?  ] if you cannot keep your heart from loving Monday, January 19, 1863. Care a Regimental commander. where absent with his reg order an officer of his command to act as [  ?  ] Thursday, January 22, 1863. 1460                1460 .10                    58440 1466                204446 14                     118 5840               300  250 281.4,40 Friday, Spt. 4th 1863 East tennessee at knoxville on the Holston River and the Knoxville and nash railroad and we are in good helth at present and I think that wee will not sea but a little more fiten iff eny and the rebels are all a frade of uss and they wont stand to fite uss atall and I dont no but wee will got to Vergina to help meede and iff wee do [  ?  ] unto [  ?  ] the infantry is passing in to town [  ?  ] and wee have got about seventry thousan men rite a round here and thare is lots of rebels to bat they get out of the way so wee will have to folow them up and then they will go till they cant go no more and then they will hunt thare hole. Sept. 7, 1863 here I am at the Cumberland gape and wee are fodder our horses on corn and wee have got to eat green corn iff we eat eny thing so wee have it jest as hardes as the rebs do onley they have no uniform and wee have so it shoes that they are about plade out and every thing goes to show that this war is coming to a close soon and with out much more fiten to for thare one men say so that comes and give them selves up to uss and they all look like hell in the barren I am seten on the log fence and looken at the Rebels on the mountains and they are planten to guns to give uss a few shell and i think that wee will have to take it by a Seage and iff wee do it will take uss fore or five weeks and we will save some harde time of it but wee will have to stan it and we will have the gape thare but some of uss may bite dust before it is taken I think iff we don’t it will bee a [  ?  ] to mee for they have got artiley up thare and have all the advantage of uss but wee have got to take it with out fail for wee have got a train of five hundred wagons on the other side and wee want to get to them to get some thing to eat for wee have to eat raw meat un less wee mix it with cold water and take it in our canteens and then eat it and it is mity good to ett wee went in to the gape and set the mill on fire and bernt it to the ground and then come back to camp and they fired to shell at our Batery but did not do any damage to eny body and I think that wee will starve them out iff wee can and it can bee dun well I am jest goin to eat a dish of corn well I jest got dun and saddled up to go out on a scout and don’t no when I shal come back for I want to get some super iff eny flour or meal comes so I can but if it don’t all rite for I haint had nothing but green corn and beets and it don’t go very good on my stomach but I will have to stand it till I get back to whare you are and then I will sea iff old Bob will get something to eat when he is hungery I bet he will iff ett can get it and she nevers fails when she under takes it but never minde, thare is beter days a coming soon for I think that the war is jest dun ett and old bob ridly will soon sea you and my little ones and ett Jenral bearn side has jest come here to uss at the gape and see that hee will have it iff he loes every man he has got to take it and he has give them till three o clock to serender and iff they don’t hee will open on them and iff he does it will bee all nite hot work for a while and it is jest noon and well the rebel Genral sent back word to ours to go to hell and comence as soon as hee please so at to time set wee got our guns redy and jest then a flag of truce come in that they they wood Serender so wee went in and too posen of the gape and it is in our hands now and will stay thare till this war is over and that wont be a grate while for thare money is not good for note of thares and ten cents of our money will by as much as tenn dolars of thare money and the sitsens has to pay from tenn to twelve dolars for a bushel of whete when one of ours will by it so when thare money is no good what is thare government good for they say thare selves that it is plade out and lots is coming to our armey every day and say that want to go home for they have ben forsed in to it and is against thare wishes to stay on that side and they want to go home so wee will payroal them and they feel all rite over it they that the Rebels leaders tell them that the yankes have stopt paroling to keep the men [  ?  ] and that keeps lots of them from it but thare is lots that don’t beleave it and they try it and wee are all a bout dead for the want of something wee left knox ville on the 15th and have traveld day and nite and it goes [  ?  ] harde with out eny thing to eat onley alittle flour and wee have to make pankakes and bake them in part of a canteen it is harde but have got to stand it and say nothe about it but I hope it will soon pay out and I think it will to for it is goin on all over the confedersy iss get in plade out but wee will have to fite iff wee take them but I think that they will give up for wee will make them but wee don’t want to take eny more lives than wee can and take them but iff they don’t give up wee will have to whip them to it and will will have to do it prety soon iff they don’t come down before long but I think that they will give up or they will have to take the riter with sweet Sept. 21, 1863 wee fought the batle of Watauga river and then wee fell back & went in to camp till nite then we went up and stopt till too (2.4) & wee went out about (9) miles and then come rite back to for wee did not have forses a nuff to make a sackfull atacked so wee fell back to our old camp in ground and are here yet and are orderd after forage for our horses & wee dont no how long wee will stay maby not to hours but iff wee do I am all redy for I jest got my brekfest and it was good to for I had a beffs hast fride and I made some pancakes and some coffee so it made mee quite a meal and it is the best meal that I have had in too weeks but Ett iff I live to get whare you are I can get some thing beter to eat than I do here for all I get here is what wee pick up and is so wee wee cant get that half the time for I have had nothing but green corn for too or three days to time and that made uss think of home I bet wee are stopt in the woods to a wait orders and I dont no how long wee will stay so I rite a litle every time that wee stop so to get the hole of it if I can so you can have it to read when I get home wee burnt or set fire to the rail rode Bridge and to the Block houses that the rebs had Built to fite uss in but wee drove them out of them and burnt them so they will have to fite uss in a open field and wee can soon make them git rite up and git mity quick for they cant stand up and fite like men So they take all the nobs and then wee drive them out and make them scadle like the old hare every time, Ett this Bridge is biulit over the Watauga River in Tennessee Wee got a shot of mail yesterday and a lot this morning and I got not one and I felt like the old hary a bout it to but I suspose that you have rote but they dont come to mee yet but they will some time iff wee got them a tall but I can stand most eny thing that eny one else can shure Ett and wee are goinin to camp to mak a stand and iff they come wee will give them a fite and it wont take much to drive them iff they no that wee are goin to fite them they will fall back faster than wee did I have got the rumatism in my sholder so it pains mee October the 18 /63 I aint very well at this time and I don’t no how long I may bee so for the docters haint no medeson and no not when wee will get it eather for they don’t care no more for a comon Solder not half as much as they do for a dam negar for they will get cloes for them when some of the boys are sufferen for them and it is the case in the regment and the dam negars are fed beter than wee are that eny one can sea that has got got half an eye that comes in to camp and the boys dont like it a tall they will rase hell with them yet iff they dont come down before long and the conolel ses that the Regment is geten half negars and hee will soon have to clean them out iff they keep on coming in the way thay have dun hee sent one off the black devels off the other day and sed hee wood send them all iff he had his way about it and wish hee wood for dam a negar eny how they more privelige than a white dose in the armey for they [Heavily scribbled out] can  go out in the guard jest when they ples and wee cant So you can sea that wee are the negar in Seds of the dam negar and it is so in the hole entire armey Wee comenced fiten the tenth of october and fiten the 10 and 11 wee fiten and run that is chasen up the rebs and they run like hell to and wee chase them up mity close so that wee keep fiten all the way and I will bet that the intfantry is most dam tiard to for [  ?  ] cant begen to keep up with uss and the rebs ar a head of uss and keep fiten all the time to some of the rebs that wee took says that they haint got over the retreat that they had to make when wee come up here before and wee are goin as fast a gain as wee did when wee come up bee fore and I think that they must feel most awfel sore now for wee are sore and lame from riden so fast and carin our guns on our back and then geten geten of and fiten on foot that iss tuff but thare is no plase that caverly can chary here un less wee can get them in a plase whare they cant get in the woods before wee get to them wee are on our way to Zelofa and are stopt near JonesBurough and are stopen to rest our selves and horses and no [  ?  ] how long wee will stay for I dont December the 10 /63 wee left Been Station and went to moristown on a scout and had a mitey harde fite to companey C. went on the advance all the time wee volenteerd to cross the river and skirmish the hills so the
