While y'all are looking for stuff, please shake out the material culture items confiscated by Federal troops in the area of the hominey pot and pinewood cabin.

We are missing a number of items, known to be in that clearing just immediately prior to the Federal arrival, and gone once they left. As we had been told that armies were laying down once they reached us, to be shuttled back to the parking area, a number of items were not secured properly, especially when we had to jump in to interact at the last moment, when it became obvious that plans had once again changed.

Food items were fair game for confiscation--material goods were not.

Amoung the items missing:
Handforged butcher knife--cherry handle
Handforged paring knife--walnut handle
Kimberlee Bruce's butcher knife--big, long and mean
Knitting needles
3 tin cups of civilian style
2 ceramic cups, one salt glazed

My compliments to the men who quietly proposed a good trade for items they saw and wanted--it seems my "Confederate States" salt bag was rather sought after--an item issued as charity to households during certain points of the war. I'm going to miss it, but the man who has it earned it well and honestly, and gave good trade for it.

Kind Regards,
Mrs. Lawson
