William B., age 19, P.O.W. in Virginia

Wrote yesterday Capt Nash AAAG a letter informing him that Dr. Smith went off owing me forty two dollars etc. Received a letter from a Mr. Wm Saml Johnson dated 11 just from Stratford Conn a relation offering me money etc. I replied. No important news from Sherman but papers state he has invested Savanah [sic] + intends to attack it. Weather moderate + about dark it snowed some.  *(William Hyslop Summer Burgwyn Private Collection, North Carolina State Archives)
