18610925 6th NCST haven't been paid - A friend belonging to the 6th regiment of State...
A friend belonging to the 6th regiment of State troops, (late Col: Fisher's,) writes : " Our health has improved wonderfully since Col. Pender came, and the arrangement of the Hospital under Dr. Holt, is very fine indeed. We have not had a "red" yet, though we have been in the service nearly four months. We can get a plenty of every thing here, but we have no money. The other regiments (from i other States) have been paid of!" and are living like lords, while we poor devils can hear the chickens squall, but have nothing that will catch them. Our men too have wives at home who need the mono', but there seems to be none for the soldiers." Cheer up brave feJlows it is coming. The old North State will never forget her brave boys.
