if I can't find it in Augusta, it is
useless for any one else in the coun
ty to try. Uncle Iv, there is one
consolation that I have got. "Ran
dolph Rose" has not gone dry
Uncle Iv, I promised you some
time ago that I would be to ?ee you
in the near future. I will have to
ask you to let me call it off, as I
have no one at home but ray wife
and myself. This is a busy part of
the year gathering my little cotton
crop (but a fine corn crop) and I
have to stay and nurse ray store, to
try and collect what I have out.
You come over and see rae, and I
will give you some good old ham to
nat, and show you 45 head of Po
land China's, half Duroc hogs and
a few head of registered Gneernsey
cattle. My son John sold a regis
tered heifer, with her first calf, for
me the other day for $100.
Uncle Iv, Gus Glover and myself
dined together in Augusta the other
day. We got to talking about the
fight at Brandy Station on the first
day of August, when our guns got
so hot that we could hardly hold
them. I will never forget, that
when we counted off 1-2-3-4, Tom
Crafton said to me, "That you can
beat any man counting off four that
he ever saw." I said to him, "Pull
your horse out and let mine come
in, I am not afraid to go into that
fight and you hold the horses," and
he replied to me, "Yes, and you'll
get your-head shot off of
you." I remarked to him, "Every
man that goes into a fight don't get
shot," and poor fellow, he got kill
ed. He was a good soldier.
Uncle Iv, did you know that I
was the only Scout in the Army of
Northern Va., that was detailed by
the Secretary of War? If you re
membei, Hampton's command was
brought from Virginia to meet
Sherman at Columbia- When we
got ll miles the other side of Col
umbia, General Hampton sent me
back to Columbia, so when the
Yankees pulled out I was in the
In conclusion, I will say that my
felf and five other Scouts were rid
ing along one night in N. C., when
we heard a man holler just ahead of
us. I remarked, "Boys, that is a
Yankee," and one of the boys said,
"You can't tell a Yankee whoop
from a Johnnie Reb." When wc
rode up to the house, there wer?
four of them, three in the house and
one outside. He took us to be his
comrades and said, "Grant had cap
tured the whole of Lee's army to
keep out of a fight, and as soon as
we form a junction with Grant, we
will flop around Johnson's army
and wind up the show. He handed
np to me, (I was on my horse) a
hand gourd full of whiskey, and
said, "Take a drink." It held about
one gallon. I took a good pull at
it and passed it around to the boys.
It was as bitteras quinine, and like
John Riley's horse, it beat no whis
key. I pulled my pistol and told
him to surrender, which he did, and
went into the house and brought out
the other fellows.
Well, Uncle Iv, I have made this
longer than I intended. Come to
see me. God bless you.
From your comrade,
Hugh H. Scott, Sr.
