William's letters discuss mutual friends, military action including fighting at Strasburg and the Third Battle of Winchester, and his devotion to her. Mary's letter gives news of friends and family, and tells of the neighborhood's relief when dire news about the fate of Douthat's Battery proved to be in error. William's first two letters (2 January 1862 and 26 September 1864) are included in original and transcript form. The second two letters (Mary's letter and the last from William, 16 October 1864) are represented only in transcript form.
