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.
