Description

Letter, Sister (probably Mary Elizabeth Wier), from Enterprise, Mississippi to Ellen Lipscomb Wier. She tells of the births and the health of the Wier children and adults, of their current locations and of the activities of their friends. She also discusses that she, the Perrymans and others are caring for sick and wounded at the hospital, bringing them food and attending them on a scheduled rotation. She mentions men of the 37th Infantry, Company B. (her brother William W. Bud Wier's company), including Thomas C. Wier's new responsibilities as a company chaplain and the fact that Dr. Perryman brought home the body of Marsh, and that Brunson has died.
