Letter from Tilton C. Reynolds to Juliana Smith Reynolds, January 28, 1862
Head Quarters 105th Regt Pa Vol
Camp Jameson Near Fort Lyon Virginia
I wrote to you last night but I know how anxious you are to hear from camp that I will write to night again. I did not get any letters to day but I got a couple yesterday So I cant complain. It is awful disagreeable here now for It is So muddy that one can hardly get round but It is easy on the men for they dont have to drill any. But Still there is Dress Parade every evening. The men all come out with White gloves on I tell you they look nice. I wish you could come and see us all formed in Line of Battle It is quite a pretty sight to one that never seen the like. [??] is here now. If I had plenty of money I would Send It to you and have you come down here for you could as well as not. Mrs Cabet & Mrs Nickelson is here & lots of women.
There was a man Died to day out of Co F. He died with the Small Pox but none of the rest in the Regt have got It. I dont know where he got It but I think If they had sent him to the Kalorama Hospital where Jo Conn was that he would have got well. Conn tended to him. I guess Mary Fryar was badly Scared when she found out this fellow had the Small pox. She would not Stay at the Hospital at all and sent word for some one to fetch over a horse and take her away
