Well Mother I must stop & get supper. That will be coffee, hard tack, & pork, also the same for breakfast, but we are glad to get that. I wish Father would send that tobacco, for it is very hard to get down here. I hope he will get well for he was a fine boy.
I would like to see him & the rest of the boys up there. It rained all night & is very cool this morning. It looks so it might rain more. Granger if he was down here he could get some nice hoop pols.
Tell John to write as soon as he [can]. I would like to hear from him & you must write often for you dont know how much [good] it does us to hear from home. I must stop for this time. My love to you all.
