Tuesday was the most perfect day since our arrival in Camp. The early morning was cool owing to the light rain during the night and the thrromcter did not reach its usual height during the day. This with throe square meals made the boys foul more like doing duty. No complaint was made whatever only that the new shoes which were .o have, been issued Monday have wot showed U) yet, and some of the boys are guard ing the street while the others are out at drill, as the ground is a little rough for a march in ones ".stacking feet'. Ono might think from reading the Free Press that all we did hero was make a target of men shooting them right and left, and that we were kept busy most of the time fighting snakes. I wish to say for friends at home that as far as Co. K or Vt. Keg. is concerned they have seen no Spanish Spies trying to poison our wells, or if there has been any shooting done it was so far away we did not even hear the report, As far as snakes are concerned the writer was talking only yesterday about them with a man who took part in the war of '0:1 and has made Chickamauga park his homo ever since, 1 Ie said "Thar am a good many snakes here friend but I reckon thar haiut many pi.en ones, black ones are not, green ones are not. Ilaint no rattlers in this cie section 1 reckon about the only ones you could call pizen are the adders and copper heads, lint thar haint many of lliem here." So Mothers do not think your sons are in any great danger here. Wo have not seen a snake in several (lavs and if the SO thousand men remain in the park long there wotit be one for milesaround. We arc all feeling fine not one in the hospital and all are pretty well acclima ted. Lieut. Carswell and Sergt.

There seems to be a good many peo ple in liarrc who are taking an interest in the movement which is on foot to help Company K boys. Dr. C -F. Camp has a plan which, when carried out, will be a good one. His plan is not to send boxes of eatables etc to the boys but to solicit subscriptions and send them the money. They can then get their bread fresh and it will be much cheap er all around in the end. Dr. Camp would like, to get the ser vices of live or six young men to solicit from house to house around the city, lie has the books already and those who can share the time for tliis work, their services will be greatly appreciated..
