Brigadier-General William F. Bartlett: Friday, August 5, 1864

No better. Wrote mother, hope it will get through. Officers sent to Columbia, S. C, yesterday. Find two or three old Eclectic Magazines to read, Rogers's Poetical Works, and Caudle Lectures. I never knew what silly things those were before.

Changed $50 U. S. for $200 C. S. currency.
