I paste in here a few of our Confederate P. C. Stamps --

On Monday -- March 28th, 1864 -- at 2:30 A. M. our
baby Bessie was born-; on the evening before Jas. Evans had
sent for me to go to his plantation at Bristol 35 miles -- to
see his daughter Eva who was very sick -- on account of Bettie's
being so near confinement, I wrote a note stating the reason
why I could not go -- I gave it to old Uncle Jim, who had
brought up the message-; & he went out to the Gregory
plantation -- (3 miles), to spend the night with his wife-,
old aunt Nicey, who lived there -- Before daylight, I sent
Fletcher out there to give him another note, stating that the
baby was born, and that I would come out next day, if I could
leave Bettie -- Uncle Jim went back with the two notes --
Sallie opened the first note first, saying that I could not
come, and was unreasonable enough to abuse me for not coming --
