D. Walker, Lewisburg, to William Mansfield

Walker wishes to learn news of Lewis and his family whom he sent to Ozark. He has learned that General Bragg's army is "in a perilous condition" but hopes Bragg is simply falling back to join General Johnston. Walker laments the loss of the Mississippi River to "the Feds," although he believes that "like the fellow who got the wolf by the ears they will soon gladly let go if they can for it will be death to hold it."
