My Dear Wife

Yours of April 2nd came to hand yesterday, also one from Mother [Murphy].1 I am very happy to learn of your good health. Your letter had been torn open by some one. Tell Mother I will write to her very soon.

I expect an opportunity to visit Chattanooga and Point Lookout to-day, so that I can only write a line or two. I understand that some member of Co. “E” goes home on furlough to-day, & I wish to send this with him.

I will have a long letter to write soon, giving you a description of my visit. Do not allow yourself to feel uneasy for me when the wind blows for I am in a very comfortable house. We are all well and getting along well. I look for another letter from you this morning. Kiss Mother for me and Remember me kindly to all. May God bless you and make you happy.

Your Affect. Husband
J. F. Culver
