will want to here from
me as often as you can
tell the people that it is
suposed that we will hav
to face the yankeys but
for my part I dont dred
them for as soon as we
begin to shoot they begin
to run and therefore we
need not dred them So
I stil feel in hopes
that I will com out saft

I can and I hav faith in
him who is able to save
me from the hand of my
enemy and deliver me
from all dainger that is
my fear and desire an I want
it to bee yours and evry
body elces that cars any
thing for me for with
out it we cant do anything

you to hav any uneasyness
for I ma be as saft in
richmon as any wher els

providents will provide
for me an bring me
