No Peace from Weakness and No Valley Forge

The Weekly Columbus Enquirer printed an editorial claiming that no negotiations for peace could be made from a position of weakness, as the South was fighting for its existence. They also printed a letter from a solder in the Confederate army stationed in Dalton; the writer acknowledged there were some shortages of supplies, but denied it was another Valley Forge, as some had apparently stated.
