In this letter to his brother, Evans writes about the Sunday service and the good weather. He notes that the regiment is not on the whole interested in the service and that there are not women in the vicinity. He writes they are in pursuit of Confederate soldiers on the run and reports of Edward Eaton's (from Allen Center) death due to illness. In the postscript he claims that if others received letters like his, the patriotism of his regiment would remain high.

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