Dear Louis,

      I needed to write you a letter right away with news and questions.

     How are they feeding you? In my nurse's tent, we have enough materials that I could make our traditional bread. Remember: You mix up warm water, yeast, and flour and other ingredients and than you roll it and knead it until it is ready to cook. It is my favorite food to eat at camp. I heard from almost all passing soldiers that they eat mostly weevil-filled hardtack, but I am lucky I don't have to eat that. I hope you are doing the same, even though I have heard rumors of spider web corn bread, whatever that is.

     I woke up this morning and I immediately saw the sun shining beautifully, and I thought you would want a picture! Good luck at camp. Have you made any new friends?

Love, Mary Ann
