He writes about being sent to Carver Hospital and Rush Barracks in Washington, D.C. for guard duty. Most of his letters describe camp life, fellow soldiers, health, and attempts to get furloughs. Two of the letters mention Abraham Lincoln. There are also several letters from friends to Mina and from Mina to her husband.
