Will Waud a Southern Volunteer.
bage for me and confirmed the report of Will
Waud�s having volunteered; he is now doing duty
with the two Murdochs on Morris� Island, has
been there three weeks. Pancknin promised to visit
me, bringing Babbage�s letter, and we parted. To

most strict surveillance, and is not allowed to
send any sketches of the fortifications North.
