Description:

Letter from Robert C. Caldwell to his wife Mag Caldwell. Robert is serving as a private in Company C., 10th Battalion, North Carolina Heavy Artillery near Wilmington, N.C. He writes about the cold, rainy weather, sleeping in an old stable, surrounded by water and exposed to the cold wind, and his detail to build cabins for winter quarters. He has recently heard some preaching. Robert tells Mag he does not expect a furlough home and advises her on hiring help, and on buying a plow and horses or mule for the farm.
