Dalton, Ga. Jany 24th 1864"
My own sweet wife,
This is my third letter
since I received one from you, but feeling
assured it is no fault of yours, I see no
reason why I should delay writing. I have
return from the Generals Quarters where I
heard Dr. Quintard preach a very excellent
sermon. He was formerly the Episcopal
minister at Chattanooga and is very eloquent
man. It has been a delightful day more
like Indian Summer than winter and I
have been imagining all day how much
I should enjoy it if I was at home. I
must rest satisfied however for the present
until others have been at home and then
I do not despair but what my turn will
come – The Major and his brother Robert
