Description

Letter from Charles Warner to his mother Mrs. Almon Warner, September 3, 1863. In it he tells her of the latest developments in camp, namely charges leveled against officers and the latest scuttlebutt among the men. As with some of the other letters he also speaks of the state of food in the army and that soon there will be an officer's mess provided by one of the sutlers, and that in future letters he did not need any more reading material for both lack of time and the fact that he already possessed enough to keep him busy with what little he did.

Included in this PDF is Bean's transcript of the letter. Note that unlike most other transcripts in the Bean Collection, he took the time to bind all typed transcripts of Charles Warner's letters into one separate book kept in box 277.

A modern version of Bean's transcript has been uploaded for the benefit of the researcher.
