a few days and when we get our camp settled, and my writing
materials, I will give a more concise record of our transactions.
I have been well since I last wrote and the health of my
men has been improving. John Grant and Jimmie are at the Bluffs
and will join us the first train. I find the mail is all ready,
so Good Bye.
Yours ever,
Edward.
My dear little pet Sasa:
If pa could see you tonight, he would give ever so much,
but I do not know but he would hug you to death almost, and want
to eat one of your little fat cheeks off.   I hope you will not
forget your pa, if you do grow so much that he will not know
you when he comes home. Now my little pet, Good Night. Pa is
going to bed, and maybe he will dream that he sees his little
ones.
Your father.
