    Dear-: Yours of Nov. 21st was received yesterday, and I assure you a letter here is quite a luxury for those of us who have not heard from home for six weeks. I am well as usual. A few of men have been sick, and one (Corporal Lamb, of Co. A) has died. Corporal C. M. Smith, of my company, is in the hospital, theatened with fever. The weather is quite cold. We manged to get up a Thanksgiving dinner, the 21st. We could not get a turkey cooked, so we had oysters, and two kinds of pudding. The Massachusetts men dined togeather that day. We have plenty of meat and bread furnished us, but everything else (except rice occasionally) we have to buy. We do not mind that, while our money last. Butter is 60 and 70 cents a pound; coffe $1, tea $2.75; everything else in the same porportion. A large box of clothing was received yesterday for the men of the twentieth Massachusetts, also blankets and clothing for Co. B of the fifteenth regiment. The officers of the fifteenth wrote to Mayor Davis, soon after we arrived here, that the men would want some clothing to make them comfortable, hoping measures would be taken to furnished them. Have you heard anything about us. I think arrangements have been made here to have clothing and money forward to us. The captain at this post thinks money had better be sent by mail. Direct all packages to the care of General J. H. Winder, Richmond, Va., via Old Point Comfort, and they will be forwarded.
