Another Monroe Boy in the Battle of Wilson’s Creek

Walter Mason writes to his friends in this City under date of August 10th, that he was a participant in the battle Wilson’s Creek.  He says, that a part of a shell from rebel ranks, struck him just above the ear, tearing away a portion of his hat and laying him senseless for about fifteen minutes.  A ball also passed through the breast of his coat.  At the time of his writing his company were in camp near Rolla Mo., were expecting to move soon but knew not where.
