I was in the Saddle,
except one or two stops of
a half hour, each, till 10 a.m.
of Sunday when we arrived
at Rappahannock Station.
At one of the said stops, I
fainted but, which was the
first I ever drank revived
me, so that I kept along.
It was very tedious, but I
prefered it to staying behind.
We only stayed at that Station
one hour, when we marched
another hour, stopped and
had breakfast, at three p.m.
and staid till dark and
moved two hours more.

There we put up a tent &
slept till one A.M. of Monday
and moved again till three
or four, when we arrived
here, having been on the road

[page break]

seventeen hours out
of thirty-one. I stood it
well, staved off a shake,
but not the Fever, and
feel comfortable, nothing
more, to-day. One pair
of those Drawers paid
its price, in the two nights,
for I have not had them
before. The Troops fell
back, from Mitchells Station
to Brandy Station,
but are part way back
there now, and there has
been some firing to-day.
I have not seen Horace
since we started. Capt. P.
has left Culpeper, & estab-
lished a Depot, here. I have
a letter from Timothy to-day.
He does not cross the Plains

With love to all
