Letter from W.B. Rice to his sister Louisa, July 31, 1861. In it he tells her of his life in the army and the conditions they faced since the outbreak of the war, though the reality of the situation and the brutality of the battlefield caused him enough disturbance to not include any information about his experiences at Bull Run.
