Description

Letter, Sarah Howard Ross at Piney Vale to her son, Emmett Ross, opening with a comment on his ''misfortune'' and telling him of her recent bad health. She writes that Colonel Cook might accompany her to Brookhaven, mentioning the train schedule. A soldier named Hartwell was in Jackson on sick furlough. Willy Curtiss and Leo joined Cowan's Battery (Company G of the 1st Mississippi Light Artillery). The legislature has passed a law that all men between sixteen and fifty-five must enlist. She asks him what command he will go back to, since there is ''no company left to go to.'' 1864.
