Letter, February 15, 1861, E. R. Lea, Philadelphia, to ''My dear Friend [Ellen Call Long?], 8 pp.: ''I am glad you have such good accounts from Richard in whose welfare I feel much interested, as well as in dear little Nonie too. . . I grieve sincerely for you, and those who think like you, that the Gulf states have not acted wisely in thus rushing into Secession. . . I hope something may yet occur to prevent civil war. . . you will scarcely be surprised to hear that northern men cannot easily sit down and fold their hands, while the best and most prosperous government the world has ever seen is being torn to pieces. . . The mass of the people [have] no desire to exact improper concessions from the South. . . If by Black Republicans you mean Abolitionists, do understand that they as a party are small and without any influence. The Republican Party, ''par excellence,'' is composed of Old Whigs, moderate Democrats, and Americans and . . . have no intention, as they have no power, to interfere with slavery where it now exists. . . I think there is no feeling of animosity here towards any of the seceded states but South Carolina. . . Kiss Nonie for me, and give my respects to your Father, whose pamphlet I read with great interest. . .''

Letter, March 4, 1861, J. Cameron to General Richard K. Call, 2 pp., acknowledging ''receipt of your admirable and patriotic address. . . I will not stop now to conjecture what the day may bring forth; trusting with every other loyal Spirit, that oil may be poured upon the troubled waves of Strife, and that the Popular Sea may soon rest from its angry heavings. . . P.S. In accordance with my hopes, but contrary to my expectations, this County has returned two Union men to the State Convention.''

Letter, August 24, 1861, J. H. Kirkman, Camp Yancey, Warrington, Florida, to ''My Dear Cousin'' [Ellen Call Long], 3 pp., regarding military preparations for war: ''. . . we are at present very busy in repairing our batteries [and] have been drilling nearly all day at Battallion Drill at double quick. . . There is a rumor. . . that we are to fight here in ten days or two weeks. . . He (Gen. Bragg) is letting those who are unfit for duty have discharge. . . Some suppose to select the best drilled Regiments to be the storming party. Ergo, we are exerting ourselves to the utmost as we wish to be selected. There is to be a Mississippian shot here next month, for killing a Sergeant whilst in the discharge of his duty. I am expecting, every day, an order . . . to join McFarland's company in the 4th Ala. Regt, whither I am very anxious to be transferred. But intend remaining here to participate in the Pickens fight if it is to come off soon. . . I wish to be at the taking of Washington City. I do hope they will fight here soon, as I am very tired waiting. . . If I go to Virginia I will seek out cousin Mary's husband. . .''

Letter, March 14, 1862, Edmond Powell, Camp Wynne's Mill, to ''My dear Mother'' [Cloe], Lake Jackson, 4 pp., regarding his regiment's military preparations and activities in Virginia: ''We have been on the Peninsula five or six months and have not got into a fight yet . . . Col. Ward received orders this evening to march towards New Port News. . . I do not know wether they will have any fighting to do or not, for our steamer the Merrimac used up their (the Yankees) war boats, so bad, I think they are afraid to shew their faces. The Merrimac sank one of the Yankees first class Frigates and burnt another besides injuring one or two more. . . I have been unhealthy for a good while, from being exposed to the weather, which has been very bad. We commenced building winter quarters in december but, I did not get into a house before February . . . you can judge for yourself what kind of weather we have in Virginia. . . I get a plenty to eat and drink (I do not mean whiskey). . . Give my respects to all the people on both Plantations. Tell Aunt Peggy I have not forgot that Yankees head yet, the first battle I get into, I am going to try and crack one over with my rifle. I will not take the trouble to bring his head home; but I will bring a lock of hair. . .''

Letter, March 19, 1862, Richard K. Call, Lake Jackson, to Thomas J. Perkins, 2 pp., responding to a conversation ''in which my loyalty to the south was called in question. . . In the hope of inducing my accuser or accusers to meet me face to face, with his false and malicious accusations [I] request you will do me the . . . favour to shew this letter, to each of [them] . . . although I opposed secession, with all I desired the command of the Troops engaged in the defence of Florida. And though I have not obtained that command . . . My very willingness to take command and risk life and fortune . . . must give the lie to all who accuse me of disloyalty to the South . . .''
