Civil War Letter, John Mckee, 60th Ohio ?, 9/15/62, Love Letter To Wife For Sale

Civil War Letter, John Mckee, 60th Ohio ?, 9/15/62, Love Letter To Wife

A very touching love letter to his wife, his "soldier's bride", from John McKee, Camp of 37th Nashville, Sept 15, 1862. I found several John McKee from Ohio. The best seems to be from the 60th Ohio Inf, Co F. Others were in 42nd Ohio Co. I, 1st OH light Artillery, and Co C, 69th Ohio. What we have is a wonderful love letter to his new bride. "My thoughts of you are many and truly the prospect of meeting you and especially of dwelling with the wife of my love seem like hope deferred." He talks about the time they spent in Lawrenceberg, touring and visiting both sets of parents. "Ah Sarah why should I not love you, when, from the day you consented to become mine you have been a light and joy, a cheering light and precious joy to my life." "Let us learn more habitually to connect thoughts of God's goodness and faithfulness. How much is there to thank him for! Well may we thank him that in his providence our hearts have been knit together in love. Are we not realizing something of that pure and heavenly love that I first talked to you of and does it not tend to make us purer, nobler, better."........ "I have been a good deal discouraged of late about our country. Our government has the soldiers to do the work before it with God's blessing, but not the generals. A general who would unite a Pope's boldness to McClellan's prudence would be the man for our country now, but neither of those men a lone is sufficient for the work and before the right man can be brought to the surface of affairs some more disasters have to be endured I fear." He continues to talk about the rebels, some friends met, his health. A very nice letter
