Dearest -

Will write you a few lines altho I hardily [sic] know what[.] I wrote one Saturday but I expect you will get the two together, as I did not get to mail it until yesterday.

Well I don't know whether I will get home this week or not, but I hope so. the candidates will be examined today and will leave Thurs or Friday so it is likely we will too, but don't look to[o] strong for me as I don't want to disappoint you. I am alright with the exception of a cold but think it will be alright soon, so don't worry.

It seems as if the discharging is awfully slow - but Col. Carter got word from Washington to get we men out of here this week so they are working day and night.

It is cold down here of nights and I hope I will be home before it gets any colder.

I will have a lot to tell you when I see you, some thing to make you laugh as well as something else.

Well this finishes my tablet so what I have to say I will have to cut short.

The men who are going home can hardily [sic] hold them selves and I presume that they won't stay much longer without a disturbance.

I want to go this week so bad that I can hardily stand it and no one can blame me when they know why.

If the war was still on I would not say much but now it is over and I want to come home.

Bye Bye till we meet,

With love
