1864 Confederate Prisoner Of War Letter/cover 12th Regiment Missouri Cavalry * For Sale

1864 CONFEDERATE PRISONER OF WAR letter/coverwritten to John Miller, a C.S.A. officer, 12th REGIMENT MISSOURI CAVALRY COMPANY B. Captain Miller's sister is writing to her brother! Interesting correspondence that warrants further research!

Letter reads in part, "No. 10, La Ange Avenue, Oct. 10th, 1864. "Dear Brother, I am with Gennie as you see she and Aunt Mary have gone to church and as I did not feel inclined to remain at home and have a 'pen-chat' with brother John, though I believe it is useless for me to continue writing as you receive none of my letters. I am 'completely discouraged' and often feel as though I will not write again, my letters must be very uninteresting or most miserably written as the letter Examiner will not condescend to glance over them for if he did I know you would receive them as I am very careful to write nothing which I think they would object to....the Physicians gave Dr. Pope a supper at the Lindell's last night; he intends leaving next week for Europe will be absent two or three years. Delle I have seen but a few minutes since I have been in they have just moved almost 'out of the world' it seems to me...Mollie and her Pa are spending a few weeks in Kentucky...Your loving, Sister" and much, much more!
