Letter. Rufus A. Barrier, [illeg.], to Mathias Barrier, Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina
Barrier writes his father to let him know that all is well since his father's visit. Last week, he says, the regiment received orders to be ready to march on Saturday, destination unknown. On Saturday they discovered they'd be marching to the front up the Darbytown Road. Their reconnaissance met with some resistance and a skirmish ensued.
