18 Feb 1862 Argyle, North Carolina Confederate Letter For Sale
Argyle N.C. Feb 18th 1862
My Dear Bro,
I have been looking for you ever since M Ray was in Anson but you have not yet appeared. He said that you expected to be down this week that he left. We have not heard from you since. I hope either to hear or see you soon. All our boys have
left us nearly and I --- we will not have a one by this time next week as the draft comes tomorrow. One third of the 71st enlisted will be taken. Billy does not know what to do, volunteer or stand the draft. I would rather he would volunteer in Cousin’s company. His company left the street yesterday three weeks. I do not know how many men he had that day but his recruiting officer has got some more men I believe. The company walked to Raleigh. I can not tell you the reason. They had two four-horse wagons to carry their baggage and two carriages part of the way. They had very nice weather to march. I don’t know who their officers are yet.
Graham Monroe was killed in battle at Roanoke Island. He was killed Friday. I believe shot through the heart. His father went to see what become of his son as soon as he heard that island was taken. He heard on the way that Graham was killed but he could not get his body. They would not allow any communication at all.
What are you doing now? It is so wet down (here) that we have to stay in the house all the time. I don’t believe you can do anything. I expect the roads are very bad in Anson.
You must write home soon and let us know of what you are doing. We have not got bot one letter from John and Ben since the 3rd December and that one came three or four weeks ago. I can’t tell what they mean. The Regiment has moved to some place about New Bern.
Tell Ada Smith she had better write to me. I wrote the last letter. Write soon and tell all the news. All the family join in love to you.
