Rishworth Rich Transcript

Port Royal S. C. Jan 13th 1862

Col Harding

The Guidons mentioned should have been written ‘Camp Colors’. We want two for each general guides. We also want a garrison flag. The Maine regiments are the only ones here without them. The health of the 9th is improving. Send your forty three hundred troops here, can't you? You won't hear of any very brilliant actions until we have a larger force.

Very Respectfully
 R. Rich
