Brandt Badger to Callie Badger, written 16 miles from Grenada, 1/16/1863

 File — Box: 1, Folder: 35
Letter is similar to one dated 1/7/1863, but he states he "can refrain from writing to you no longer." Brandt notes the possibility of peace when a lady from the North visits the Confederate Army with peace propositions. He also notes several desertions in the camp after this news but remains with high optimism. Envelope included with postmark “Grenada Jan. 24,” addressed to “Mrs. Callie Badger, Gonzales, Texas,” return address in upper left-hand corner “B. Badger, Private in Capt. J.D. Brown’s Cavalry Battalion, Waul’s Texas Legion”.
