In this letter to his father, Evans writes that his unit have not been called upon to engage Confederate soldiers due to the fact that General Joseph Johnston's forces had fallen back. He also notes that he wants more news from the east, as he heard of a Confederate victory in Winchester, Virginia as they march toward Washington. In an addition written on June 26, he writes that his unit has been sent to the front and that they suffered no casualties despite heavy Confederate fire.

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