In this letter to his mother, Evans writes that it is rainy and windy, but that his unit remains in good spirits. He also writes that he believes the Union will defeat the Confederacy soon even though attempts to do so in the fall have come up short. In a February 14 addition to the letter, he writes that it rained constantly the previous night, which dampened most beds in his unit.

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