Description

Letter, Samuel H. Pope in Shuqualak, Mississippi, to William Hollinshed Lee, at the Officer's Hospital in Uniontown, Alabama, expressing his desire for Lee to visit him at his boarding house. Sims was wounded and captured. Pope sympathizes with Lee's unpleasant experience in the hospital. General Stephen D. Lee and Regina Harrison had a ''grand affair'' of a wedding, and ''Maj. Blewitt gave them a large Confederate party the following evening.'' Pope doesn't believe that war time is the right time to get married. 1865.
