I've had a long journey to Lawrenceburg and I really miss you Alex, tell grandma Judy I love her too. I have planted many crops here and I have had help from a few people here to build a house to sell to get some more money for food.
Maybe some day you can come on a trip with me.
Today we had helped 2 soldiers with their wounds and we also sheltered some soldiers that were headed back home.
I have heard many soldiers in the battle of Gettysburg have been very injured and killed.
Please pray that your father was not one that has been killed or injured. I have not had a telegram or anything to tell me what has happened to him so, so far I believe he is fine but please tell the family to keep him in your prays.
