It states that things are quiet after the fighting went on uninterrupted day and night. The rebels have sharp shooters with long Kentucky rifles and telescope sights that he thinks can kill a man at a thousand yards or hit any object of that size once out of three times. He goes on to speak about the immense losses they have sustained since the spring campaign, but the boys seem as confident as ever. Grant has procured the services of some Pennsylvania miners who for weeks have been working on some underground railroad (the Crater Affair). The recent raid into Maryland was a failure, the object was to draw the Army away but grant only sent 2 Divisions of the 6th Corps and even though they gathered up a considerable plunder, every such movement they make awakens and unites the North. The boys got it into their heads that the rotten Confederacy has got to come down or they will pull it down or blow it up. He goes on to say that he is determined to be mustered out in the fall and will take up arms again after all the other able bodied men have had a turn at them.

The first is dated March 8, 1863 from Near Falmouth, Va. and states that they have much confidence in their ability and in themselves and if every regiment had this confidence the battles would be won. There is talk the 3rd Corps will be moving by river but he believes this is not true for General Hooker has made his desires known to have his old division incorporated into the Republic Army and it could be accomplished by the work of his friends. There is nothing Hooker can ask they will not be granted and then the true cause on the non-success of the army will fall on the shoulders of those Generals who came so near causing its total wreck.

Headquarters has propositioned the men enlisted for three years who have less than one year in that if after 90 days from June 25 they can elect to enlist for 3 years and be discharged upon accepting the proposition.

627                      St Patrick Copper Farthing 1663?1672     St Patrick copper farthing believed to be minted between 1663 and 1672 in Dublin. It was first believed that the coins that Mark Newby brought with him and circulated through New Jersey were the larger variety called a halfpenny due to the coin being allowed to circulate as a halfpenny, and the smaller varieties are believed to be a farthing. After some research however, the weight of the smaller varieties has been deemed to be too heavy to be a 2:1 ratio.
