    Dr. Willams came down from Jacksonville with the people, attended meeting and returned with them. In the evening after supper, he left Jacksonville and returned to camp, and reported that the people universally (who had visited the camp) expressed the highest satisfaction, with the treatment and entertainment, and the good order that prevailed in our midst, that one gentlemen said he had vissited the camp, and presumed he had questioned about one hundred of the men, and had receieved polite answers to all of his questions, but could not ascertain who they were, where they were gowing, or what were their business, and I believe them a fine set of fellows or a pack of damn knaves and I cannot tell for my life which. Another intellagent gentlemen remarked that he did not believe there was a collage in the United States, that could turn out such an aloquent set of preachers, as he had heard that day in the camp. Dr. Willams said he had heard hundred of such like remarks at Jacksonville, and the most perfect good humor prevailed throughout the town.
