From the 119th Regiment.
FRIEND SNYDER: We are still in existence, though in such a state of bodily and mental inactivity, that we can hardly be said to live, at least to any great extent. This alarming state of things is [unknown] first by the warmth and enervating influence of the climate; and secondly by the laziness naturally induced by camp life, which is fast growing chronic with some of us.
The weather is always pleasant except perhaps, in the middle of the day, when it is sometimes quite warm; generally it is quite cool and comfortable mornings and evenings, though rather dry at present.
Harvest is about commencing here and the strawberry season is already over. Green peas and other "garden sass" can be had for money enough to wrap them up in. Blackberries and other wild fruits give promise of being abundant, and will be duly appreciated.
We are generally enjoying excellent health.
