Letter. Rufus A. Barrier, Headquarters 8th North Carolina Regiment, near Richmond, Virginia, to Mathias Barrier, Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina
Barrier has not heard from his father in some time. He writes that his health is improving rapidly. There has been no fighting lately. His brigade is "snugly fixed for the winter." He had his horse valued a few days before; it is worth $3083.33 1/3. He hopes to hear soon from home.
