Home Camp near Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Frank M Phelps, 10th Wisconsin

[Excerpt]

Of course I am pretty wild now but it is out of the power of the possibilities to remain as steady here as you could at home. Anyway, you will say the army is no place for one to improve their morals. Well, I agree with you there perfectly for I know of a minister who went down to Huntsville with our army and stole a horse and sold it down there and then stole another and run away home and that minister was our chaplain. I guess you will say “I am a pretty good boy” and so I will drop the subject.
