FROM A WATERVILLE SUBSTITUTE
CAMP NEAR WARINGTON SPRINGS
September 12th,1863

Dear Sister:---I take my pen in hand to answer your kind letter that I received last night, and was very glad to hear from you once more, and to hear that you were all well. I am well, and hope that these few lines will find you in the same pickle. We had orders this morning to be ready to march at any moment, but the old soldiers say we may not move for two months yet. It has been raining here this afternoon, but has cleared up now, and the sun comes out as hot a ever. They had a fight at Culpepper this forenoon. It is about 18 miles from here. We could hear the cannons from where we are quite plain. A man just came along the road that was in the fight, he had his horse shot from under him, and was slightly wounded. He said the rebs were retreating when he came away; they are giving the rebels hail Columbia every where now days. You did not understand me about being with the 7th Massachusetts regiment. We are only drilling with them until the 2d Vermont gets back, then we shall join them. They are now in New York. I went down to the 10th Vermont regiment the other day, and I saw Chester Nye; he is 1st Lieutenant. Ate dinner with him. I saw Jake’s wife’s brother; he is well.

I would like to have you send me all your pictures if you will. Father said he was a good mind to go to war. Tell him he is out of it, and he had better keep out. I like it here first rate so far. I shall be glad when the old 2d Vermont gets back.
