Letter. Rufus A. Barrier, Camp near Kinston, North Carolina, to Mathias Barrier, Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina
Barrier has left Charleston and returned to Kinston after traveling through terrible weather for five days. Barrier thanks his mother and father for their kindness in sending him boxes and food and things. He thinks that the regiment is likely to stay in the woods near Kinston and camp for the winter. He hopes that his parents will be able to come and visit. Three regiments of Barrier's brigade will move on to Weldon, North Carolina. Otherwise all is quiet.
