Travis Evans wrote a letter to his wife: Dec 19th 1862 from CAMP CHESTNUT in Georgetown.


Part of the letter reads:
"Dear wife, I take the pleasure of writing you a few lines informing you I am not very well. I have a very bad head ache & a very bad cold. I stood all night on guard duty I think was the cause. We get beaf & rice one day & rice & beef next day, sometimes a little sugar. We get plenty such as it is. There has been three deaths in camp since I have been here and a good many are sick............"
