Letter. William Lafayette Barrier, Camp 1st North Carolina Cavalry, to Mathias Barrier, Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina
Barrier sends along with his letter a pair of shoes: "I guess I will not need them as I prefer boots for this service." He also sends his mother a pipe of his own crafting. He requests that his family send him some of his dental equipment, forceps for the pulling of various kinds of teeth and other implements, and that they have a leather case made for their transport.
