August 23, 1863

No change of camp.  Am very tired of staying in camp so long.  Have not had a fight for over 1 ½ months.  Hope it will not be long ere we have another one.  Am in need of a great many articles which only the Yanks can furnish at the present time.  Want to get new horses & harness for guns & clothing for myself.  Rec’d 2 letters from home July 1st & 20th.
