I Recvd your letter yesterday By James Duncan which gave me great satisfaction to hear from home and to her from you and the children I have got so few letters from home since I have been here that it is a considerable treat to me to git one and much more to here from you and the children we are all tolerable well at this time and I think my helth is considerable better I have been trying to git a furlough to come home but have not as yet been able to git one it is a verry hard matter to git a furlough but I think times will change and there will be a better chance after a while I think I will be able to git off sometime this fall I have nothing of any importance to wright to you I will send you some money if I can't get off soon the fers chance I can git I want you to have me some socks and one par pants and that will be as much clothes as I will want the boy(s) will want about the same." Kiss the children all for me and accept the best love of your husband."
