TROY Service Centers meet the needs of working adults, including military, government agency civilians, teachers and future business leaders who want the opportunities that come with earning a degree.

My Dear Wife
I have been looking for a letter
from you for two or three days but have received no letter as yet and being
impatient I will wait no longer but proceed to write to you I have very nearly gotten over my attack of
Diarrhea_ and begin to feel like I was
al myself again_ there is no news here
except the Yankees is all [reported] to have left Charleston and there is no
prospect of a fight now_ the company is still at Charleston_ and I do know when
they will come back__ whether at all or not__ it is likely if they do not come back in a few days we shall go to
them__ we are [fareing]
some better now than when I first came to the company __ we get seven ounces of bacon and a half a
gill of syrup and we draw some rice we get
plenty of corn bread we draw grits to
make coffee if they will always feed us
as well as they do now we can make out you must take good care of your meat for I am fearful you will not have
enough__ it is not worth while for me t
tell you that the time drags dull and heavy with me__ O that this cruel war would end so that I
could come home and stay take care of you and assist you in raising and
training our Dear Children__ here I
cannot see you but I can think of you__ The scenes of camp life is very different from that around the home
fireside. Surrounded by a [fond] wife
and darling [prattling] children it is
indeed a heaven on earth compared with the life of a soldier here we have to rise at the sound of the
horn attend roll call some times half
dozen time a day and no one allowed to
leave the limits of the camp without special permission from the officer of the
day and while we are not on duty I can hear nothing but cussing and swearing
and see nothing but card playing__ it is
impossible for me to describe to you the vice immorality and the wickedness
that is practiced in [camps] but thank god I have been able to resist all
temptation__ instead of its having any
influence over me it has had the
contrary effect__ I have felt more importance
of a moral life and have felt a deeper sense of my obligations to my maker than
I ever have before in my life__ and I
hope that you will try to serve the Lord so that if we should never be
permitted to meet again on earth_ that we shall meet at the bar of God in peace
to enter into rest _ never to fast no
more__ but I have not [despaired] I have
strong faith that I shall be shielded from harm and protected from danger__ and shall [return] home at some future
time__ I send you a paper of [needles]
you must take good care of them for they are very high__ they cost me a dollar__ I send you some paper also you must save everything you can__ I am trying to do so I have entirely quit the use of
tobacco__ you must write soon and often
__ I remain_
Your affectionate Husband
