The United States Christian Commission
Sends this sheet as the Soldier's message to his home.
Let it hasten to those who wait for tidings.
U.S. General Hospital No.
Nashville. Tenn. 6 May  1865.
My dear daughter,
 I will write to you
on a soldiers, sheet to show you what
kind it is and how it looks. The
soldiers often write home, and
often receive letters from home.
Many of them are very good boys
others are not quite so good as they
might be. I talk with a great
many of them, and tell them to
be good. Some of them are married
and have little boys and little girls
at home. They talk about them
and write to them, same as I do.
This is a bright, beautiful, balmy
morning.
