Dear sister
I received that letter that had so many parts to it. I was very glad
to see the friends that I had left behind willing to write A few lims
to me to encourage me A long. I dont feel like answering
them to day, but as soon as I get A little stronger, I will
try and write A few words in reply to those that the girls wrote.
give my respects to Briggses girls, and Miss Chase in particular.
I cant think of any more' to write this time. Tell Charley Ingram
that I havent received any letter from him since I was there
to port hudson and that one I answered the next day after I got
it. give my best respects to Charley also Mr. Vanallen that is
is all for this time.   so good By for this time.   hoping if we dont m
eet

will be no more parting.   put you trust in god and you will
always have some one to gide you.   Write soon.   Tell all the news.
