Tuesday, Feb. 11

Snowing all day.  Letter from William.  Some time since he had written and we began to be anxious about his health.  He is well except toothache.  This winter has brought us very little cold weather.  The snow melts almost as fast as it falls.  We have had no sleighing yet.  Some one says:  "Old winter has seceded and that is why we have a Southern climate."  The state of the roads has placed an embargo on military movement.  Marching and drilling in the mud results in great loss of health and even life.  Loss from deaths in camp has exceeded many fold our loss from the enemy's guns.
