1862 November 10 Camp near Warrenton,Va.

[letter of Hiram M. Cash begun on the 8th and continued on the 9th concludes]
                           Nov. 10th  today Genl.
McClellan paid us a all a visit you ought to have
heard the cheers that rent the air as he passed
around among the camps  they tell us he has
been superseeded by Genl. Burnside I hope it is
not so but I fear it is too true. Mac. has the
confidence of the whole army and he is the most
capable of commanding them and if he could
have his way the war would be ended in a
short time as it would have been long ago
if his plans had not been intefeared with
There is very heavy fireing to be heard and I
think a hard battle is being fought if it is so
we shall have to moove soon and I must
close try and write soon if you are able to
do so if not get some one to write                                    
From your son Hiram M. Cash
