Does anyone have a copy of this diary?

Porterfield, Charles. "Diary of a Prisoner of War at Quebec." Edited by J. A. Waddell. Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, 9 (October 1901), pp. 144-152.

Charles Porterfield Jr, born 1750 Frederick County, Virginia, died January 10, 1781 on the Santee River, near Moncks Corner, South Carolina from wounds received in the Battle of Camden. A very interesting Porterfield. Started out as a private in Daniel Morgan's Company. Ended up a Lt. Col. and one of the few officer's that performed well at the Battle of Camden.
