JAMES LOGUE was a jolly, good-natured young soldier who served his country well. I think that he committed but one bad break, but that in name has an ominous sound; Jim deserted, but hear the rest and you won't be ashamed of him any more than he has been of himself. A battery was stationed a short distance below us at Wolf Run Shoals and it was short of men and a few were transferred from the 13th to serve in the battery. Jim was the one to go from D, and he went and staid only a day or two, The artillery men and the service were strange to Jim and he was homesick, couldn't sleep or eat, wept some, I believe, and finally in desperation deserted and made his way back home to his own company, and the sun shone again, and in Jim's case has been shining ever since. Why he was not punished and sent back I don't know. Perhaps his sorrowful condition was indicative of slow improvement in this new branch of the service. He will now relate the whole story with a good deal of jollity.
