An interesting letter from Lt. Col. Sanders . . .

. . . will be found in to-day’s paper. We have had a letter from him about semi-weekly up to the time of battle, but this one we take the privilege of publishing besides loosing his horse, Add. Had his scabbard and saddle struck by balls. At the time of writing he had not had off his clothes for days, not even his boots for three nights, and has nearly starved! Rather a hard life, that.
