past few days in which tho Minnesota was
engaged, she disobeyed ber orders, which
is not at all probable.

Washington, D. C, May 28, 1861.
My Dear Jatheb and Mother: The
Regimont is ordered to move across tho
river to-night. We have no means of know
iug what reception we are to meet with. I
am inclined to the opinion that our entrance
to the City of Alexandria will be hotly
contested, us I am just informed a largo
force have arrived thore to-day. Should
this happen, my dear parents, it may bo
my lot to be injured , in some manner.
Whatever may happeo, cherish the conso
lation that I was engaged in the perform
ance of a sacred duty ; and to-night ihinkiDg
of the probabilities of to-morrow, and tbo
occurrences of the past, I am perfectly con
tent to accept wDatever my fortune may be,
confident that Ho who noteth even the fall
of a sparrow, may have some purpose, even
in the fate of one like me.
My darling and ever loved parents, good
bye. God bless, protect and care for you.
