My dear companion,

I seat myself to drop you a few lines to let you know that I am well, hoping that you are, too, etc.

I received your kind letter and was glad to hear from you.

I have no news to write, only I want you to come as soon as you can and bring your fifteen days rations, etc.

We hear a report that we are going to Virginia, but don’t believe it.

If you come and we get word, we, or one of us, will meet you in Savannah.  We only get one pass at a time now.

You talk about eating fish.  We have sturgeon, and it is as good as dead horse - you may know how we like it.

I have not got time to write any more as it is roll call.

Good-bye until next time, which I hope will be soon.

Yours, etc.

W. H. Harden
