Information from typed transcription of letter: ''The following is the complete text of a letter penned on July 6, 1862, from a Confederate soldier, Thomas Stevens of Noxubee County [Mississippi], to Miss Sue Nelson, who later was to become his bride. The original letter, smudged and faded, yet readable, was discovered in 1961 by Mrs. Tom Douglas of Macon, a descendant of the marriage.''
