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.
