Title:Letter, S. H. Pope to W. H. Lee; 1/8/1865

Letter, Samuel H. Pope in Shuqualak, Mississippi, to William Hollinshed Lee, at the Officer's Hospital in Uniontown, Alabama. Pope is stationed in Shuqualak as Purchasing Commissary. He invites Lee to visit Columbus and mentions that he can stay with Mrs. Morrow (Pope's mother-in-law) and ''Miss Clodie'' (Clotille Morrow). He wonders if Lee can work out a transfer to the hospital in Columbus. ''All excitement from Raids has subsided.'' Sam Battle Fort was shot through both shoulders in November and was ''unable to push on a coat.'' Pope explains why didn't receive his recent mail in a timely way; when he telegraphed Lee, he had ''just returned from a tour of inspection on horse back, through the interior of the state.'' 1865.
