March 17, 1863

Dear Mother,

I once more seat myself to write you a few lines which will inform you that I am in good health. I wrote you the other day but I thought I would write again as I thought perhaps I might not have the chance soon again for we are now expecting active service now every day. I think when you hear from us again you will hear of a bloody time. The winter is nearly over and the summer is near. The fighting must begin soon or it is not to begin at all. It has begun for they are fighting now in hearing of us. There has been a continual cannonading all day up the river from here but it's several miles off but I am listening every minute for them to call on us for reinforcements. I think from the way the cannons roar it must be a very hard struggle. But don't let this cause you any uneasiness for such things can't be hoped for the fighting must be done. This war was forced upon us by the proud fanatics of the nation. Now we can only resist it with the ball and bayonet and let us do it courageously if we die in the attempt. Let us implore the mercy of God to be with us in such trying times.

E. P. Landers
