September 17, 1863

Considerable skirmishing today … About 4 o’clock the Yankees left their breastworks for what is not known.  Gen. Lee came to where my 1st piece is.  Think he is looking to see how the defences are.

Received letters from home today under date of June 30th.  Came to the conclusion they were rather ancient.
