Description

Letter from Charles Warner to his mother Mrs. Almon Warner, September 6, 1863. In it he speaks of his practice writing as many letters as possible though apologetic if he had missed sending a note or two back home, and his prospects in the army barring his failure to get a promotion. He also makes note of the practice of dress parade and his negative disposition towards the activity, and that he made a habit out of skipping drill entirely at times.

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.
