Yesterday I received yours of the 18th [?]. We left Nashville the 21st
up to this date have expended $30,000 and paid some 600 men. I have
no good opportunity of writing as when the Cars stop I am busy and when
they are going can not write. We leave for Chattanooga in about ten
minutes. This is a beautiful Country we now in sight of the Tennessee
River and the Sand Mountains. The Rail Roads in this country seem to
follow the shape of the surface of the ground and not have long grades
like we have East. The sight we had just coming over the Dauphin
Mountains was grand.

Here we are in front of old Lookout whose top we expect to be on this
afternoon if we get time. I received orders to proceed to Knoxville
and suppose we can go this afternoon.
All well. Much love to all.
