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.
