Col. R. B. Vance’s Regiment are going to move over here in the old pine field the other side of the road. I fear they will be troublesome. I expect they will strip every apple at the upper orchard. Four or five of the officers eat dinner here today.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
