Hdqrs Corps
Jan 1, 1864
General:
General Cleburne had organized a Secret Society in his division, whose object
seems to be to bind officers & men more closely together and confirm their devotion to
the cause of Southern independence. He ascribes to it the steadiness of his division on
several occasions.
Genl. Hindman is anxious to send some officer up to be initiated in these
mysteries and introduce them among our troops: and thought of Col. Pressley as a
suitable person.
He begs you will talk with him on the subject. His idea is that anything that will
secure unity and esprit de carpe amongst the troops as they practice must do good.

Very Resp. Yours,
Archer Anderson
Genl. Patton Anderson
