In this letter to his sister, Evans writes of the several dead soldiers from Marysville and recounts his experience at Vicksburg. He proceeds to warn against those in Ohio who wish an immediate end to the war and states that none of his fellow soldiers will vote for the local candidate running in opposition to the continuation of the war. He also discusses sermons by Captain Coulter and that he boards at the St. Nichols hotel.

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