Letter. William Lafayette Barrier, Hanover Junction, Virginia to Mathias Barrier, Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina
Barrier is back with the regiment after a visit home to Cabarrus County. He reports good health for himself and his company; they have enough to eat, "but rather a scant allowance for the horses." He says he sold the "little sorrell pony" he brought from home for $200, $150 of which he will send to Mathias soon. He has refused an offer of $400 for "my Filly," also brought from home. In a postscript he reports that he heard from Daniel Moose just a few days prior and that he is in good health.
