Title:Letter from Robert C. Caldwell to Mag Caldwell, February 12th, 1864
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 and writes from Fort Caswell in Brunswick County. He gives Mag advice on spring planting, and tells her to have a plow repaired. He gives her instructions on settling accounts with several neighbors, and chastises her for not consulting him beforehand. Robert also tells Mag that her letters to him do not provide enough news about what is going on at the farm and with the neighbors. He then apologizes for not writing a "sweet" letter.
