Soldier's Letter, 2 pages, 8vo., Front of Petersburg, VA, July 3rd, 1864. Orlando R. Chamberlin (Co. K, 14th New York Heavy Artillery, also served in 34th NY Infantry, wounded Antietam & POW at Petersburg, VA) writes:

"...It is very warm weather here but I stand it first rate. I tell you when there is so many sick I am tough and healthy as I ever was in my life. We are some twenty rods from the front line of Rebels so you can see we are in close quarters firing all the time between our Pickets and Artillery night and day. We are dusty and lousy I think but that is nothing. I think there will be a heavy battle before long now. I think we shall whip them if we do they will have to leave Virginia let us hope for the best and put our trust in God ...O.R.Chamberlin..."
