pose grandfathers wen- grand-g^u
erals in some wur or another, to
volunteer their services to com

nor grand father were ever gen

Not knowing you personally, I
presume to write y?u on the ac
quaintance with which a cousin ol
mine, Thomas Hill had with you at
Wofford College. He said you
were a pretty clever fellow, rind
would tight, as he had good cause
to know, from a bout you and ho
had while boarding at Professor
Duncan's, now Bishop Duncan.?
After his acoonut or that fight I
have always f.dt as if i knew you.
I have never had any experience
in actual war, but I have been h
very valiant oHlcer in the State
militia. I have had man} trying
experiences, but the one that
t< ted my courage the most was
ti ncampment of the South
Carolina militia at Greenville, S.
C, In 1888, I think. I then com
manded about the best company
that attended that encampment
about 10 strong, and showed no
fewer men on the iiual day than
any command present, about nine
men only being In line?the bal
ance lost, missing and disabled.
One gallant and elegant adjutant
geueral, who was and is a pirticu
lar friend of mine, M. L. Botiham,
was disabled, and lay resting neat
the refreshment stand on the day
of our arrival, but he soon recov
ered, bu?I was able to perform all
of his duties until the end of the
campaign. Our gallant General
liugu.enln was equal to any emer
gency, and his chief aid, K. P, ftlc
Kissiek was charging everything
that looked at all like breastworks
or a outcry. He captured every
thing in sight, and if you would
wateii him closely you would gen
erally Had him decorating a chair
Pint was elose (o a table, mostly
covered with glass ware. IIstill
survives, but is rather predisposed
logout, not aide to undertake an
other campaign. Several gallant
captains who served with me in
that eventful campaign, I am sorry
to say are soldiering on the other
sidn of the river.
The Charleston troops proved
themselves veterans in that cam
paign, and if they are as fond of
blood as they ar.i of whiskey, they
would he a flue set to send hack to
Cuba, I believe I am under many
obligations to the Irish Volunteers
of Charleston for various aets of
kindness, and to Captain Mere
land of the Siuipson loungers for
use of his tent one afternoon.
Your adjutant (toiieral, Oary
Watts can givo you some of Dm
minor details ofthat campaign, as
there is the place he first appeared
before the public K?zo, wonderful
to behold in his military grandeur!
I am about the same si/,e as Watts
wi.li his uniform off. He has a lit
tle the best of mo in look.-?, but
I've got the age on him and exper
ience. I weigh 126 pounds when in
a good humor, and have been
whipped in every personal diffi
culty I have over had, but my
fights have always been with home
or native* talent, and I now thirst
for foreign gore. I am about the
right stau to wear a sword, too
small to curry a musket or handle
a spad". I havo a vonm of stento

commands. I look belter ami feel
