My Dear Wife
I received yours of the 30 nth last Sudnay I was
very sorry to learn that you had accident by sprining your shoulder though I am glad to hear by the receipt of your letter of the 5th inst which came to land to day that it is almost well the
calculation is correct with regards to the cotton_ Had I have wrote to you before it was sold I
should have dirictid you to have kept it but is
probably the best_ I am glad that John
hired you a woman I hope he can spare
her out of the farm to do your washing and scouring_ I hope he has planted the old field by the
house in cotton so that you will have a place for your geese as you are not in need of money I will not
send you any now_ I may have a use for
some soon I have not heard from the
cards I sent for yet as soon as I do I
will let you know_ as soon as I get the
chance to go to town I will get some needles if I can & send you_ You inquired about which I owed_ I owe no debts except 75 dollars to Whit
Clark and my blacksmith’s bill to Swanson for 1861 I owe him nothing for last year_ Pay Swanson for it is a matter that I had
forgot, but the note in Clayton I do not
wish you to pay until after the war_ Have the interest payed if they require it but
no more, I want to save that much if I
should loose the Stewart debt by a general defundiate. I want you to save all the money you can to
pay for the building of a house next summer or fall should this war
continue I cannot say to you this time
that I am well I am slowly recovering from a severe attack of diarrhea_ We received orders last Sunday night at
8oclock to be in Savannah ready to take the train to
by 1 oclock_ I
was not well when we started but would not complain for fear of censure I had a severe chill followed by sick
stomach vomiting an head ache and just
before the train was ready to start my bowels comenced runing off and I was compelled to report to the Capt
who sent me back to camp_ You need not
be uneasy I have been tolerably well cared for I feel a good deal better this evening than
I have since Sunday moring I think I will be well in 3 or 4 days_ Franklin has just recovered from an attack of
the same kind_ He is here in camp_ Teil Ms. Elaine
that Henry is well He was left here as a
camp guard with some others & we have not heard any thing from the company
since left as I remarked was with them near up to time of starting and I never
saw amore jovial set in my life They
were as gay they possibly could have been had they been going to some
place of amusement where no laugh was pending. [solem] the
[order] cause them to run wild with excitement and while
at Savanah the shouts and screams of soldiers and lumbering of numerous artillry carriages over plank roads and
the trembling of _______ and the bustle of 3 or 4 thousand _____ _____ _ mixed with the shrill whistleings of the various _____ _____ created quite a lively scene Such a one as I never saw before All I can say about the fight at
ton is the attack was made by 9 Ironclads_ One of them is reported sank_ I will write again in a few days_
