St. Helena I.[BCF]
All the troops, excepting the coloured Regiments, are ordered to Folly Island. There will be a grand attack on Charleston, I suppose. I feel very much disappointed at being left behind, especially after Montgomery was promised by Genl Gilmore that we should have our share in it. I write you this lest you should see mention of the movement in the papers, & think we were in it.
I have not time to write to Annie, as the mail goes directly. Please send her this, or write to her.
Your loving Son
P.s. I sent you a box with some clothes & my old sword. Enclosed is receipt.
