Letter. Rufus A. Barrier, Camp 8th North Carolina Infantry, Sullivan's Island, South Carolina, to Mathias Barrier, Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina
Barrier reports receiving his father's letter and is glad to hear that all is well back home. The horse trading has gone to his satisfaction. He is dismayed to hear of strife at home on the plantation. He requests food from home and commiserates with his father about the payment of the tithe tax, which is very high.
