June 29, 1864

Dear Mother,

I feel as though I ought to write you this morning although I haven’t a stamp to my name but will write & if I get a chance, mail it. You must expect to get your letters written on all sorts of paper for my pile is exhausted. I am well now, had been sick a few days when wrote last.
There has been some fighting of late. On the 22nd our regt. was on the skirmish line all day & about 4 PM were driven in & a most desperate assault made upon us but it was repulsed with terrible loss to the Rebels. We have laid here ever since with strong works & if they will try the game over again we will give them worse than they got before. Our regt. lost 48 men in the scrape, 4 killed, & 27 wounded, the rest missing. Our co. lost none.
Got a letter from Lem last night. He has got to be ward master & clear back to Jeffersonville spending the hot season very fine, but I am glad he was so fortunate.
Lots of love to Aunt Sarah also Cousin L., J. and all. Is John home? I heard he was. Love to him & Laura & Willie Jr.
It is fearfully hot. We will have to halt on that account soon.
The latest from you is June 3rd.
