Letter. William Lafayette Barrier, Petersburg, Virginia, to Rufus Barrier, n.p.
Barrier writes his brother, Rufus, to let him know of his health and general whereabouts. The regiment has just arrived in Petersburg and will set out soon for Richmond: "Fighting has been going at Richmond for several days, and is supposed to be still going on. Old Stonewall is just raking in the Yankeys." He closes by urging Rufus to write him at Richmond.
