8 Captain Kidder was surprised to see that the bay at Belle Plain Landing was now partially frozen, hard enough, he said, for a man to stand on. He knew that this sudden blast of harsh weather would be extremely hard on those that were sick in the regiment. Although he still had seven of his men in hospitals in and around Stafford Court House, what concerned him was the handful of men that were ill and forced to make the journey to Belle Plain Landing. 9 Before the war, John S. Kidder made lists of everything that had to do with the operation of the carriage shop, for example, work orders, supplies, money owed, and money due.

18 Retracing their steps of the previous day, the brigade formed a line and proceeded to move further inland. Their destination was the Old Richmond Road near Deep Bottom Creek. As they neared the road, the brigade came within range of Confederate artillery. At first there were only a few shots fired; they did not appear to be dangerous. “I was standing on the bank [of the road] ordering my men to lay down, [when] a shell came directly over my head,” recalled Kidder. I heard and saw it coming.

On one occasion, Elisha Fisher sold a buggy, complete with a recently purchased colt. The deal soured when the horse abruptly died, “You must not fret about me” 35 and the owner demanded to be reimbursed for the loss. When news of this reached Kidder, he shrugged off the incident. “I certainly have no feeling on my part for we are all liable to be deceived in such matters and I am sure that I shall never whine or complain at the loss. ”42 It would be weeks before John S. Kidder could expect to see the chest and its contents from home.
