you and let you know
how we both are I am
a thousand times obliged to
you for your present of

not worthwhile for you

good luck to supply
myself and have a plenty
left for my Brother I
am still remaining in
the Farmvill Hospittal
my health beeing rather
bad to return to the
hardships of Camp life

number of sick in the
hispittal the task is
not very hard though

the day oweing to the
assistance of those that
are nearlly well. I want

Give my love to all of the
young Ladies and tell
them that if the good
