Soldier's Letter, 2 pages, 8vo., Deep Bottom (Virginia), August 22, 1864. John F. Arnold (Co. F, 11th Maine Infantry) writes to his sister.

"...There has been heavy fighting all round...The 10th Corps lost heavy. My tent mate was wounded in the second charge in the arm. There was 5 shot by my side. I had a ball shot into my haversack...

On the night of the 18th, the Rebs charged our whole line and were repulsed with heavy loss and that night we fell back onto the Malvern Hill Road..Frank"
