We are all a getting along very well and have been ever since we came here. I have not heard a word from home since I left Chatham and you may depend that I am a getting very anxious to hear from you and the rest of the family.

We drawed our uniform on last Friday we are all dressed in Robin coats and good pants. We have not dressed our county yet but expect soon. Tell both of the little boys daily for me I am a beginning to want to see them and you very badly. I sent up my likeness and a letter by [Orin Por] and promised to send it to [Pedlar's Hill] for you. I want you to write to me how the crop is a comeing on and whether you have got the wheat thrashed out or not. Our regiment is not fully organized yet. Tell Mr. [Elkinsin] and his family howdy for me and also tell Mr. James [Reaver] and his family howdy for me. Well I want you to send me some soap by Mr. [Gealas] if you can conveniently do so for soap cannot be bought here on any reasonable terms and it is not much account after you do get it. I close by asking you to write soon. Direct your letter to Wilmington in care of Capt. N.A. Ramsey. Give my best respects to all inquiring friends. From your affection husband".
