      Are William Morris's letters found in a book on the 27th North Carolina?

      Teej - Capt.
      William Morris, commanding the 37th North Carolina Troops, Branch's brigade,
      Light Division, writes home on September 23, 1862:  “…we went to harpers Ferry & captured
      Twelve Thousand yankeys and all of there arms & stores.  they surrendered without Much fighting.  We had a fine time at harpers fery.  Got Plenty Shugar & Coffee, in fact all
      most any thing we could wish, clothing, etc.” 
      He writes again
      on September 28, 1862: “I have Clothes plenty to Doo Me all winter as we all
      Got what we wanted at Harpers Ferry.”
      There are
      probably other examples in other letter sets. I just happen to be more familiar
      with the 37th NCT.
