slow as a person would walk. I think you may look for me home on Monday. If I am the least bit sick I certainly will tell you.

To-morrow when I am rested I will write you a longer letter.

Adieu My dear dear Julia

MY DEAREST JULIA

We are through the Court Martial and will start home day‐ after-tomorrow We meet again to-morrow too read over the proceedings and will be too late for the stage so that Saturday is the day that we will start. Either Saturday night or Sunday night, about 1 O'Clock at night, you may look for me. I can not tell you anything except how very very much I love you and how often I think of you. It is possible that we will go by the way of Syracuse if it causes no detention, and I think it will not.

I am affraid that from our late arrival at this place that my letter may not have got in the Mail so that, although I have written daily, you may miss two days in geting letters. To‐ morrow I shall look for a letter from you. This is the last letter you need look for from me. The first stage that starts after the one that carries this will carry me so there is no object in writing again.

I am very well. A thousand kisses and much love to you my dearest Juje
