Military Division of the Mississippi Near Macon Ga May 8 1865. My dear Davidson I have been intending for a long while to write you and give an account of our doings in this part of the country but have heretofore had no opportunity of sending a letter off. In fact I do not know when this will be started, but I will try to have it ready for the first opportunity. I suppose you have seen in the papers some account of our doings if they will allow us a column or two in the same sheet which contains the surrender of Lee & Johnsons.
Head Quarters 1st Brigade 2d Cav’y Div 4 miles South of Kingston Ga. May 20/64 My dear Davidson We are at the front as you see. Since I wrote you on the 11th from Villanous we have been constantly on the move. One the 15th we went to within three miles of Rome where we ran on to a large force of the rebels.
