Fall of Confeder
Biswac, 12 miles from Morton Miss,
July 26th, 1863.
My Dear Ma.:
I wrote to Pa a few days ago and
to Pink yesterday and I purpose writ
ing you a short letter today as it is
probably the last opportunity I will
have for several days. We are under
which is 50 miles above us on thc
marching orders for Enterprise, Miss,
Mobile & Qhio Railroad and will
necessarily consume several days it
accomplishing it. We are ordered tc
leave in the morning at 4 o'clock pre
cisely. I am fearful that we will have
gotten a tedious march of it, but truss
not as severe as what we have alreadi
passed through, as I understand th<
country is better supplied with water
etc. This army is somewhat de
moralized and I am under the impres
sion, that Gen. Johnson's object in go
ing to Enterprise is for the purpos<
of re-organizing, and unless Mobile i<
threatened, I doubt very much if w<
will see any active service for some
time to come. It is very humiliatinj
to a South Carolinian to be connecte<
with an army under such circum
stances. Things look more gloomy a
iresent than ever before, but I try t<
console myself with the reflection
that the darkest hours is always jus
before day. Our brigade is in goo<
fighting trim, and I have never has
so little trouble managing my men

They are eager to meet the foe an

eyes are now turned to dear old Char

crazy to go to her relief, but th
chances are against us, and we re

keeping of the brave soldiers whoa

that Island makes the reduction of
Fort Sumter merely a matter of time,
I :hope however, that .the next news
from Charleston will convey the- glad
tidings of the expulsion of the enemy
from that Island. Gen. Johnson has
issued orders granting furloughs. Se
you may look for some one soon from
this army. Bob Harvin will be re
lieved fron duty next Friday and will
return home, but will do so very re
luctantly as he seems to ne very much
attached to the Regt. I regret his
leaving md for he is one of the best
hearted men in the world. I have no
idea of asking for a furlough to come
home, but if an opportunity offers it
self I will run up to. Pickens to see
my relatives and friends there. We
are fearing ii little better in the eat
ing line than when I wrote before, but
rough enough yet. It is the general
talk in the Regiment that I am the
only man in it that is on gaining
ground, this is remarkable but more
- the less thru. My health is decidedly
better than it has ever been since I
I entered service and everything I eat
- seems to agree with me. It was ex
ceedingly painful to me to retreat by
the horses of those patriotic ladies
near Jackson who had been so kind to
t me and leave them in the hands of,
I such an inhuman toe. If the men in I
I MIiss.1 had half the patriotism, that l
the ladies have Mississippi would
now be free. I will write again as
I soon as I get to Enterprise. My love
I to all the family. Kiss; the children
- for me. Tell the negroes all howdy.
t Remember me very kindly to Mrs.
e .Maingault and the young ladies. Dr.
- ask to be remembered to white and
e black he has been a little unwell for
e a day or two but is now over it.
All the boys tolerable well.
s Yours sincerely,
The long looked for and much talk
f ed about "white-way" for Manning is
now an assured fact, the contract hav
d ing been let today. Mr. Simpson,
representing the Westinghouse Co.,
was the successful bidder. This will
give Manning one of the most modern
d "white-way's" in the State. All elee
s tric wires in the business portion will
y be underground, and there will be
._ about fifty ornamental steel post with
e one four hundred candle power light

For the last few weeks the news

year. Some few who have idle mo

trying their new bird (logs and shot
guns on the abundance of partridge in
and around this territory however
due to the extreme dry weather re
turns have not been so heavy, the bag
limit scarcely having been broken.
Others from Summerton have been on
a coastal expedition in search of deer
and other smaller game.

Mr. and Mrs. W. II. Anderson spent
Saturday in Sumter.
We gather from current rumor that
the're is a movement on foot to iave
the principal streets of Summertoin
and if this be true' there is s;till some
thin gin store for this town which is
badly needed. Every town of aniy'
co'nsetuence is awaking to the fact
that a gomI paved street adds to the
town as well as a protection to the
merchants whose stores it adjoins in
the way of having less dust to aceui
ulate in their respective st< res.
The adding of a good paved street
on Summei-tons !main thoroughfare
will be a god atotraction for the town
and we feel sure that the town a. a
whole will be glad to see our city
