Box Family Letters, 20 April and 29 May 1862 [Addition]
Two letters, 20 April and 29 May 1862, added to the Library's holdings of Box family papers consist of messages exchanged between William I. Box and his wife, Margret. From Camp Brooks near Adams Run, William wrote on 20 April that his company was being transferred over for the war, with fifty dollars bounty and sixty days furlough.

Box was forwarding the money in a letter via Dr. Fuller together with directions for its disposition. Margret's letter of 29 May, written from their home in Laurens District, gives news of the corn, wheat, and oat crops, livestock, and their daughter, Lueller-"I wished you would come home and see us all a while...I want to see you so bad...I dream about you a heap of times it seems like all is gone when you are gone."
