William B. Page

LAMOILLE NEWSDEALER: JUNE 27, 1864

FROM THE EIGHTH REGIMENT

A letter from Wm. B. Page, of this town, a member of the 8th Regiment dated Franklin, La, Jan. 11th says:

"Nearly all the Regiment now present and on duty, have re-enlisted for three years from the 5th day of January,1864, unless sooner discharged, and we expect to go home on furlough and our regiment will be filled to the maximum. We may be sent back here and perhaps not; we care as little as we know about it.

He says the "NEWSDEALER has reached them regularly during the last year."
