Save to active project

Dear Julia, is that you may feel as contented and as little alarm as I do. If I could but see and talk to you frequently Julia I would not care to be any place else. How happy we must both be after so long a separation, when we meet again. How often I think of our pleasant walks & rides & talks!—It has been two or three days since I wrote the above. Since that reports continue to reach us which leaves but little doubt that we will have a big fight at Monteray. Fred. is not yet with us but I am expecting him now evry day. How anxious I am to see this affair over that I may go back and be with my Dea[r] Julia again! I will write to you evry opport[unit]y I have of Mailing a letter after we leave this, and I shall expect a letter from you Julia by evry Mail that reaches us. Even then I fear I will not hear from you half as often as formerly. I have not been very well for a few days and have been busy in my new duties. I am Quarter Master to the Regiment. 1 Give my love to all at White Haven Tell Ellen that Mr Dilworth 2 speaks of her very often. Adieu My Dearest Julia—
