A fine letter enclosed from 'Camp Hooker, Budd's Ferry' dated November 18, 'There is some talk of having regular river communication with Washington, but as the rascally rebels amuse themselves by firing at everything which goes up or down and one of their shot might go through a mailbag, you see that cannot be depended upon. We are going to have Thanksgiving in Camp...and have abundant reasons considering the victories at Beaufort and in Kentucky...'. A charming cover.
