      [No spelling corrections were made in this transcript]

      Grand Ecore La April 15, 1862.

      "Dear Sir, I will endevor to give you a short sketch of our march through Lauisana. We left Brasier on the 13 of March full equiped for the summer campaign our march was over land and toilsome march. The 8 of April we came on the enemy. And had a desparate hard fight, it took place at Masfield early in the morning. And lasted for the day the 13 Army Corp was badly cut to pieces we lost our corporal he had his arm chot off below the elbow and was taken prisoner the lose of [...can't read...] regiment was 12 killed and wounded [...can't read...] taken prisoner it was a hard fight out corp lost about one thousand. The rebs drove us back three miles than. The 10 Corp came and re-enforsed us then we held the ground for the night, the next night we gell back to Pleasent Hill there we was re-enforced by general Smith with the 16 corp there we had a stand and a despirate trugle for our lives and a the rebs was forced to fall back, the rebs say that they buried eight of there men to one of ours, they say that they lost lives and eight thousand killed and wounded and the same number taken prisoner, so I think on the whole it was the rebs whipped and us win, they got 50 of our wagons and lots of our ammunition. The rebs loss in the whole was seven thousand five hundred killed and we have not heard the amount of wounded and prisoners yet. Well I was glad to get out alive. The bullets fell like hail all the time.

      "I was glad to hear from you and the family and my litle children. Father, I want you to keep them till I give orders for to have them moved and I think that well be a long time for; I think that you will be good to them. I was glad to get there likeness, they look so pretty I hope they are as [...can;t read...] as they Look Well. I am well at this time a [...can't read...] I have sprained my ankle pretty bad and can hardly walk on it and I hope these may find you the same and the children also. Father, I am still trying to live the life of the righteous that I may be prepared to meet those that has washed their robes and I will cose by saying good by for this time."
