More troops arrived to-day by Railroad.
— I dont know how many. Four Regiments
left town this evening, going down the Valley
Turnpike, viz: the 11th
Alabama ^ 6th North Caro-
Alab Alabama + 4th Texas. Many
of them attended preaching at our church this
morning. The four Regiments ^
tute Whiting's Brigade. A large number of the
soldiers who were at church, were good-looking
young men, although roughly
drest clad, as
usual. We had a large swarm of bees this
evening. Va + I went down to the McAdam
ized (Augusta) Street to see the troops pass by. They
appeared very cheerful. — rather disorderly.
Part of this Brigade was in the battle of Seven Pines
near Richmond: on the 31st ult., — the 11th Mississip-
pi lost 134 men. The 4th Alabama suffered severely
Mass Manassas. They all
seemed glad to get
up to this country.
