    Sidney advised his wife in Darlington County, South Carollina on a whole range of farm problems. There was trouble with the overseer; a need to discipline the slaves (he said the slaves needed to be whipped and talked of selling them, but later said to tell them "Howdy"); the difficulty of obtaining salt (he said she would have to beg for credit if necessary); and there were debts that needed to be paid, and new crops to be planted. He told her to sell the cotton for whatever she could get for it and plant corn and potatoes. Contains little about his regiment's battles.
