I am to have a Furlow of two days after we are mustered I wish you would send me those things which I sent for. for I am in great need of them. I am still Act. Orderly of our Company. We [have] 78 men in Camp or rather on the roll 26 on furlow and the reast here in my charge. I am going to go home by Detroit & in Company of the Lieut—which Anderson.
I wish you would write for it is lonesome here enough. I took 35 men down town last night to Bathe we have fine times here some time & not so good at others. But I must close for I have business so good by tell sis to write again & see if she can tell her Brother when I come home we will be muster some time but when is the question not before two weeks any-way. So good by
