|Sgt. James F. Price|
|Melissa Clark Price|
This is what you might call rough soldiering but I suppose it is all for our blessed country and must be endured without murmuring. Dearest Meliss I think I would let some good-natured person take my place nine months from now. Meliss, I am almost tempted to swear this morning but thanks to the instructions received at the old Wesley Chapel – through them I have been enabled to refrain from profanation. Oh my bleeding country, it is for thee I suffer and endure the hardships and privations of a soldier’s life.
