My dear Wife
I arrived here safe on yesterday evening. Bro. Johnie came with me & is now here.1 We went to church this forenoon, & this afternoon we will take a walk to see some of his acquaintances. He will leave for his Battery this evening or in the morning.
Yours of the 14th I recd. on my return last night.2 I cannot understand why my letters do not reach you regularly; I have certainly written. I will write a long letter to-night if Bro. Johnie leaves, &, if not, I will write to-morrow.
We left Bro. Sammy very well. All are well here. I recd. a letter from W. O. Russell & A. J. Cropsey this morning, also from Lieut. H. H. McDowell.
I hope to hear from you soon again. I close in haste. May God bless you with the riches of his Grace. Give my love to all.
Your Affect. Husband
J. F. Culver
