April – 6th 1864
Octavia, as S. E. Bobbitt
will start home in the
morning I thought I
would write you a few
lines. This leaves me and
and all the rest of the boys very
well. I would write often but
Jim he writes every week and
I tell him to write how I am
when he writes I wrote to you
last week but I have not
recd. any answer from you
yet. I would like to hear
from home once every
week. We have a good deal
of bad weather here since
I left home. I have no neus
to write. my respects to all. I
am as ever your Brother
