- February 15th, 1847.
Dear K.-I seize an opportunity to drop
you a line but as 1 am fearful that it will
be a bad chance for you ever to receive
it, I shall say but litle.
Our regiment arrived here safely from
Mobile, except Edward Ramsey, of the
'96 Boys, who died on Sunday, 7th inst.,
and was buried at sea. A new and sol
emn burial to the most of us.
The Island of Lobos is 65 miles below
or South of Tampico, and 135 west) of
Vera Cruz.
The most of the '96 Boys get along
prety wel ; several have had the mutmpt
since leaving Hamburg, and some jol
them suffered severely at sea; and I among
the rest-for three days. Thos. Tillman
was also very sick, but is now on land and
getting very heary. Padgett, of !the '96
Boys, got his feet badly -scalded ,n 'the
passage, by a pot of c6ffee accidentally
turning over, while on shipboard. but is
now doing very well. The rest of the
company are all well. aid .you-would be
very much surprised to see the manner in
which some of our tender youths handle
an axe, or spade. or middling of Bacon
and I must.here say, that,the least com
plaints are made by those who have been
unaccustomed to hardships. :-W. Bleaer,
Whit. Brooks, Dr. Ardis, Galphin, Sin
kins, David Adams,)r. Key, Wm. Cobb,
Lafayette Wever, and many other tender
youths of your acquaintance, make most
excellent soldiers-always on hand, -at
Reveille, Roast Beef. or any other duty.
Taking our company all together, they
are in ine health and spirits; an'd will
from the Captain down do their fluty in
any emergency.
There are now five regiments here, viz:
The Palmetto. Pennsylvania, Tenwessee,
Mississippi and Louisiana.. Regiments.
We have here now lying off 13 ships, and
are daily expecting 15 more with volun
teers and regulars. As soon as they -all
arrive we shall, I understadd, make an at
tack by land and sea on Vera Cruz, which
I presume will give our boys some work
to take. * * * *
It is now half past 2 o'clock, A. M.,
and the schooner leaves early,( most there.
fore close by saying that as soon as-1 get
a little leisure, I will try and give you a
full account of whatever may happen here
during our stay.
Very sincerely, your friend.

The Charlestou Volunteers are now en

little isle' of a bout'a mile in circumrference,
in the wide ocean. .With thtyee cornpa.
ntes of the Palmnettb Regimenr, they sailed
from Mobile on the 30th'ult., on board the
Alhambra, under comnmand of Col. But
.Upon crossinsg the bar,ottr sealed orders
were opened,'and Gen. Scott briefly in
formed us that if we redelied the Ric
Grande by the 1st of Feb., our ship musi
report to him, if not, the'n r'epair to this
island and await further orders. T-he
former was out of our power.for want ol
time, so we proceeded on our asearch..ol
this small -speck- on the..bosom of -these
beautiful blue waters.' After being batf
fested about -by -two or three 'Northets'
for Iwo weeks, our sight was gratified by
the Stars and Stripes flying from the petlt
of. the sloep of war St. Marg's. She ta
agnebored to' protect us and htow tus out

Our snall piece of land was a welcome
sight, but upon landing we were much
interested at findiug ourselves surrounded
by the limne and lemon tr es, the Crouis-;
bouc or india ribber tree, and the ..vega
tation in all tio variety of the season.

blossoms, wave side by side'.- -- -
The Island lies about 10 1piles from the
main land, in sight of the. Mlexicans,.but
they have not venrured us a visit and will
not do so. .Upqon referring to the meap.
you will find it near Cape Boxo,,about 50
miles from Tampico and 130 from Vera
