Southern Watchman, Sept. 25, l86l.
For the Southern Watchman

Mr. Editor:—I am just from the camp of Col. A. ". Wright's Legion, four miles from Atlanta. Four companies have already gone into camp; they also have subsistence and equipage, tents, &c. for completion of the Legion, and have the best arrangement for camping that I have seen in my travels. This Legion is organizing for the coast of Georgia, and will repair to the coast as soon as sufficiently drilled. They are to be armed with large and small breach-loading rifle cannon, spring sabre, lance, Colt's revolver and sabre-bayonet rifle. This Legion is under the immediate supervision and patronage of the Confederate Government. Two more infantry companies can be admitted, by immediate application to Lieut. Col. G. W. Lee, or Maj. J. J. Parr, Atlanta.
