Kentucky, October 15, 1862

We are now near Denville, the enemy is not far from here, there has been fighting all the time since the sixth of October.

On October 8th many fell, the battle lasted all day, the line was eight miles long. How many thousand wounded and killed I do not yet know. I can happily say that none in our regiment have been wounded, we have been mostly in reserve.

The cannons are in constant use in front of us. I have no time to write more.
