Estabrooks, Elisha
[From Elisha Estabrooks to his family: Morganza Bend, July 7, 1864]


Morganza Bend, Thursday, July 7, 1804
Dear ones at home, I received a letter from you yesterday and a paper with
it.  I was very much pleased to hear from you for I haven't heard from home
before in a bout two months.  Your letter found me still trying to live and
in good spirits.  I enojoy myself very well but not as well as I would if
I was not sick.  I am not very sick, but just sick enough to not fell like
myself.  I have had the Louisiana quick step every since we landed to Port
Hudson.  I don't think you would hardly know me now for I am very poor and
my hair is cut so short that it can't be pulled.  I think that I will come
out all rite after a while
