Col. II. L. Penbow,
My Dear Friend:
I am Nery glad that your were to
day elected the president of the Sur
vivors Association. I felt that you
were entitled to it, more than any
ether man in our county. I for one,
cannot forget your services in the
war anud also what you did for Man
ning, since the war, whe~n once ser
icurly th'eatened by the n'egroes.
But my object in writing this is to
ask that the touching tribute you to
d.ay read, with reference to our gal
1 at and departed friend Maj. Henry
Lesesne, be published. I do not know
whether or not it was asked for, for
publication. If not I would be glad if
you wvould send it to me, and allow
me to have it published in th' Clar
endon Enterprise stating thu., it is
(lone by request.
As the years pas's by, I find (lear
Colonel, that my heart goes out more
and more in esteem for you, in sin
cere love for your soul, and in deep)
concern for your' welfare for eternity.
Allow me as your true friend to urge
you to give your heart to the blessed
Saviour. Time is slipping away--we
will soon be in an endless eternity, let
us prepare for it. We are sinners,
but Jesus is a loving and omlnipatent
Saviour. Go to Him-- just as you
are. Hie is able and willing to save.
And lie says-"hirh that cometh unto
me I will in no wvise cast out" andI
God tells us that "the blood of Jesus
Christ his Son, cleaneth us from all
You were a brave and gallant sol-.
dier in the war. I admire you for it.
And now (lear friend.-enlist under tihe
banner of the cross. Be a soldier of
Jesus Christ. JRepent of ein-accept
Jesus the Saviour, as he is freely of
fered to you in the gospel, and let
your influence be on tile sideC of right
eousness. Godl bless you (lear Col.
in time and in eternity. I am your

Nov. 20th, 1862,
I receive3i yours of the 3rd. inst.,
on Sunday and readl it with great in
terest. I was truly glad to hear that
you had got clear of your fever but
regreted very much to hear of the
baid condlition of your wound, I hope
it i* much better b~y thia time. I am
tolerably well myself, but a good

D~ear Co. Oct. 8th, 1862.
I would have written to you before
now but have been quite unwell and
no chance for writing, I hope this may
find you mending fast and that you
may soon be able to come to us.
After I left you at Manasas, I got
along pretty Avell till I arrived at
Leesburg, there I took chill and fever,
was moved from Leesburg to Win
chester where I took Jaundice together
with my old complain Diarrhaea.
I heard that there was no officers
with the company, anr begged the
Surgeon to give me a discharge from
the hospital that I might be wvith the
company, I am now sick and totally
unfit for dluty, but will stick as long
as I possibly can. Lieut. Cantey came
up yesterday but has jaundlico and *ie
unfit for duty. Everything is quiet
here t.ur Li-my is perfecity atill and
no on a an idlea wyhat th-1 next
mo~ve will b~e. There are variors re.
por' s about the enemy but we c'annot
find out wnoat they are at. It i e
ported that we are to go hack to the
coast on Evans I understand is do
ing his best Mo get us oil' Go I gran t
that we may get off' for I am alreadyl
convinced thatI I cannot stand this
wvateri a r. mate. Th .e ar -c . ly
foi-ty men v :i i. me ali pr ' v badily
used up. We have neither tents nor
clotinir. Ot.y baggage was left at
Leesburg nnd it is now in possession
of the enemy I have not a changiny
I expect you wvould like to know who
are d'ad out of the company: Ser'gt.
.J. I:. Wells, WV. D). Kelly, W. L. Brun
.Con, II. J1. Lynam, Jim Wise, J. S.
Wise and P. S. Rich bourg, Legrand
Anderson is reported (Iead and I feat'
it is so, I fear' there are several oth
ers dead as I can not hear anythine
from them. Several of the coinpany
were taken prisoners at Washington.
I know the namnes of only two, they
qer II. B. Drose and 11. A. Mims, they,
have been parttoled. Caplt. I larvin was
taken by the eniemy at. Leesbutrg hut
he was such a bad looking chance they
would not have him, he is the poorest
man I think I e'ver' saw. I expect he
will go home soon. I held the elec
tion as you trequtested(, you will see
the result befotre this rcaches you, I
did my best for' the :Maj. and Ihug..
Tell youtr Pa that I received his let
ter of 20 Atig. an lst Oct. will try
to answer it sootn, I titink from the
tenor of his letter' that he has heard
some of the reports in Clarendon coni
cerning me which I have heard, you
recollect on ouir wvay from Charleston
after' I had given so many furooughs
vo'i order'ed me not to send alny motre
fto you. JI did as you directed, r'efused
se'veral, next day you agreed to let
many more from each company go.
'I'he 'next morning Slawson sent in
some fur'lougs which you signed, the
meni went home and told that I would
not give them furlotughs but Slaws~on
wo'tld. These men being mad with
me told that I had becapne very un
pontilar with the company and other
lies which were calcnlated to in jure
n'e athome, -.-- hns been telling
some tales oname which I beg ou .e
rR AT I
of the merits
I at practically r
many of the men had to ride all the
way from Culpepper to Richmond on
open platform cars through a snow
storm, without either shoes or blan
kets and the effects are beginning
plainly to be seen I wrote you in my
last letter that we were going to
Tarboro. We went there but only
remained one (lay when we were or
dered to this place, which is one of
the poorest and most out of the way
places that you ever saw. I am be
ginning to think that we have at last
found our winter quarters as we are
beginning to receive tents, Evans has
aill the time been anxious to have con..
mnand of a dlivision, and I think that
wvas the reason he wished to go to
South Carolina as he would have been
the Senior Brigadier there which
would, but as he has command of
5,000 troops and this position of North
Carolina he is satisfied andl we art
very apt to remain here during the
winter. There are said to be 25,000
Vankees at Newbern. They made ai
slight (demonstration about eleven
miles below us dlaybeford yesterday,
but causedl us no more harmn than the
10ons of a position of one night's rest,
I think that a fight is exp'ected as one(
is allowved to leave camp and we are
ordered to be readly to move at a mo
.ments; waIrning. Our picketing here
is pretty hard as it takes a Regt. and
'2 company at a time. onle position
nickets five and the other eleven miles
My com1pany~ is quite small at. this
time numbering only 30 with me, you
write me that there are 25 or 30 at
home I am inclined to think that out
of that number there must be some fit
for duty, I would be glad if you .could
asee'rtain if ----, have fur
loughs, I have heard that they were
at home and it is str-ange that they
should be furloughed, when I have
received a1 notice from the Surgeon
who had charge of them, that they
were dlischarged from the hospital

see what you can do ab~out Mr-. Shep

The management of affairs in the

Capt. Durham is at home on fur

of his wife, but poor fellow, he was
loomed not to see her pdive. Se died
