Letter. Rufus A. Barrier, Camp Whiting, Wilmington, North Carolina, to Mathias Barrier, Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina
Barrier writes to inform his family that they will have an opportunity to send him "a box of something to eat" soon: "Lieutenant McAllister started home yesterday on sick furlough for fourteen days and he told me that he would bring me a small box of tricks if you would take it to Concord." Barrier adds that there is another lieutenant in the regiment, a very nice man, who would like a pair of shoes made along the lines of Barrier's own: "If you get the shoes made charge them to me and let me know what they are worth."
