The collection consists of a letter from E.J. Humphries, dated July 24, 1862 from Augusta, Georgia, to his wife. He just got to Augusta and has nothing much to do: "They had just as well have let me go home as to keep me here doing nothing." He heard the corn crop was good at home and "I can get some watermelons and peaches downtown on very fair terms." He seems headed for Richmond.
