From The 18th

A late letter from Capt. Duncan, Co. B. of this reg., to Mrs. Duncan, says the regiment was at Boonville, near the Red River, marching on Arkadelphia, where they expected to have a fight, as Gen. Price was entrenching himself at that place evidently preparing for battle. Health of the boys was good. The recruits who started for the regiment some six weeks ago had not reached them at the time of the writing.
