Title

Letter of Francis Marion Poteet to Martha Hendley Poteet, November 3, 1863

Description

In this letter, Poteet is writing his wife to tell her how desperately home sick he is. He continues to say that he and several others are considering desertion, and that they would have done so the previous evening if they had not been stopped by a bridge. Poteet goes on to say that he had not yet been paid, but when he had he would send the money home so that she can come visit him. He tells his wife that he does not get enough to eat and he would like her to bring him cakes, peaches, and apples.
