Author: Freeman, John
Abstract: Freeman is delayed in writing but informs Miss Dale that he will answer all of her questions that he can. He mentions that Jimmy (Carson) had a premonition that he would meet his end prior to the attack and up to the end his last thoughts were of her. Freeman notes that no soldier met his fate in a braver manner. In addition, Freeman addresses Miss Dale’s concern for Jimmy’s way of life and he assures her that one could lead a cleaner life than that of Jimmy’s. He concludes with describing the recovery and burial of Jimmy as well as stating he will have any personal items shipped home. 3 pages
