May 29, 1863

I will merely state that I am well this morning and I am not on guard today.

It rained very hard last night and the wind blew a considerable gale.  It rained in on us and wet our bed so that we had to lie on a wet bed last night.  But we are getting so that we can sleep anywhere.

I seal all my letters with rice.

I want to smoke.  So, I will quit until another time.

Just so, we keep the fleas and lice off.  We are doing well, so we don’t murmur at anything that comes.

So, I will close.  Give my respect to all the connection and friends, and receive my love to yourself and Mollie.

Good-bye.

Yours, etc.
