Dear Mother, —
I embrace this opportunity of writing to you to let you
know that I am well and hope that this will find you enjoying
the same blessing.
We have marching orders at the present time and have
had for several days. I do not know whether we shall go or
not, and if we do go, I don't know where. The boys are all
in good spirits. We have plenty to eat and wear.
I have not received any word from you for several days.
I got a letter from Thomas last Saturday. He is well. I
have not seen him since we left Murfreesboro.
Mother, I wrote a letter on the 7th of this month, in
which I enclosed five dollars. I would send five in this, but I
thought I would wait till I had heard from the other. In
this, I send you a little present consisting of a postage cur-
rency pocket book. I have not anything more to write at this
time. I shall write to Mary Awker.
Adieu for this time.
