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.

I received you letter
yesterday I was very glad to hear from
you I had been very uneasy for three or
four days but am happy to hear that all
is well ! There is no news of
importance here at this time! The
Yankees still keep up the siege of
! It seems as if their energies are untireing in their efforts at the place it is my opinion (as expressed before)
they will eventually take the place although they will do it at great cost! A very ser=ious accident occurred on the drill ground a few
evenings ago! While we was on drill ! we was ordered to fire to the rear while in
[echelon] and in making the left about with the caisons the [wheel] horses that Tom Picket was driving fell ! which caused the caisons to run over the horses and, Picket the horses was not injured much but Pickett
was hurt pretty bad the [wheel] of the caison ran over his legs but did not break them ! he received a severe
cut on his head ! it is very dangerous with these rapid movements on drill if a horse should
fall__ I do not drive I pefer the duties of a canoners ! I am sorry the crop is no better than
you think it is ! I am in hopes that it will turn out better than you think
! bottom land generally turns out more than it looks for ! have you a good potatoe crop ! If
your corn is short you had better not try to fatten more meat than it will take
to do you ! I
think you had better [buy] another bushel of salt ! I do not think [that] with what you have will
be enough ! I
will write to Fred Bryan and see if I can get him to make a crop for you ! though I fear he would get tired and leave before the crop
was finished ! do you not think it would be a good ideal to seell the
steers if you have no work for them to do ! I do not think there is any use of feeding them through the winter
unless you have work for them to do ! do you not think I
had better get that field below the road from Henry White to sew so that you
can have a pasture next year ! this leaves me
tolerable well ! my health has improved a good deal for the last two weeks ! I will write again next week
! write soon ! my love
to the children Yours affectionately
