undated 2
 

 

As I have not sent my letter off yet, I will send this note also by hand, as Mr. Statham is going home.

We heard heavy cannonading yesterday evening, about one and a half hours by the Sun, but we have not heard the cause nor the effect.  This morning, September 16, the bombarding seemed to be at Beulah.

I am still well this morning.

I forgot to tell you how much salt we have made.  We have just begun to get into the business.  I reckon we have got ten bushels.  I am going to send some to you or to the old man Seaborn the last of the week, if I can get the chance.  Mr. Stough speaks of going home then.

So, I will close.

Farewell.

W. H. Harden
