Letter. William Lafayette Barrier, Camp 1st N.C. Cavalry, to Mathias Barrier, Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina
Barrier has been away from the regiment on horse detail, and is now returned. He can get a "very good government horse" to ride, "so he has concluded to make himself easy on the horse question for this season." He continues: "There is no chance to get my filly and it is probably best to leave her where she is and let the government feed her." His health, and the health of the regiment, is good. They expect to move on soon, perhaps across the Potomac.
