Letter, Samuel H. Pope in Shuqualak, Mississippi, to William Hollinshed Lee, at the Officer's Hospital in Uniontown, Alabama, expressing his desire for Lee to visit him at his boarding house.

Blewitt gave them a large Confederate party the following evening.'' Pope doesn't believe that war time is the right time to get married. 1865.
