Publication Date



In this letter to his sister, Evans writes about the monotony of his life and watching boats on the river. He mentions the expected draft of 300,000 and wishes it were double based on his belief in the value of service and a desire to bring the war to an end. He also writes about prisoners from Camp Ford who died of disease after leaving the prison.

A typed transcript follows the original handwritten letter in this digital file.
