" had a little snow so it was very good sleighing, once in a while a sleigh passes by the Office "" I was going out if the office and the steeps were covered with ice and the first thing I knew I was setting down on them "" I caught my thumb some how and sprained it and today it is swelled up as large as three thumbs "" Warren is home now, what is he up to. I don't know but he has got sick and gone and reenlisted again before his time "" they are paying pretty high bounties now to those who reenlist in Hancock's Corps "" I have thought sometimes that I would go in for that one year, but I guess the best plan would be to keep out of it for a while longer ! "" and serve out our time before you commence another "" I had a letter from Hubb the other day, he is well and still in Washington "" he is in the V.R.C. ( Veterans Reserve Corps ) now so he tells me "" he said he had 9 months to serve from the 22 of the month, I'm a little ahead of him I have only 8 from the 28th "He was wounded at Gettysburg July 1st 1863 and transferred to the 136th Company 2nd Battalion V.R.C.
