    Camp Gregg, March 10th My Dear Mama, I received your letter of the 5th this evening. I received, both yours of the 3rd and Maria's of the 4th yesterday. This came quicker than usual, only five days. I wrote to you two days ago and to Aunt S. two days before. That Maria for her letter, and tell her I will write again soon. Dr. Prioleau left this morning, so that I am now in charge of the Med. Dept. of the Regt. I do not know whether he will go to Charleston, for they will only grant him ten days furlough. They are harder on the Med. Officers in that respect, than on[End Page 1] any others in the army. I am much obliged to you for the tea, and only wish that I had you to draw it and sweeten it for me. But it is too expensive a thing for you to send to me so, and it spoils it to drink it with such sugar as we get here, when we get any at all. I suppose Papa will go down this week. I hope that he will write to me, when he gets there, and tell me how every thing is going on. It has snowed a good deal today, but as it was quite warm until evening, it is nearly all melted. It is now turning cold. I wonder what put Mrs. [Orr?] in the notion of calling on you. Rather late in the day; was it not? Do give my love to all. I feel in quite good spirits tonight, as I have heard from you so lately. Your Affectionate Son, W. [End Page 2] Soldier's Letter from W.W. Keith Asst. Surg. 12th Regt. S.C.V. Mrs. P.T. Keith Anderson C.H. So. Ca.[End Page 3]
