CAMP NEAR PETERSBURG VIRGINIA,
July 13th, 1864.

To the voters of Davidson county North Carolina, under arms and at home.–Having learned lately through friends from home, that my name has been presented in the papers as a candidate to represent the county of Davidson in the House of Commons of the next Legislature of North Carolina, would say to my fellow-citizens and fellow-soldiers, that if I am their choice in the coming election I shall endeavor to serve them as faithfully in the Legislature as I have and expect to do in the army. Striving constantly to appreciate their every interest as citizens and soldiers to the very best of my ability,

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

C[HARLES]. W. BRADSHAW,
Lieutenant Colonel commanding,
Forty-second North Carolina troops.1
