U. S. Army General Hospital. Ward 2. Camden St. Baltimore December 26th 1862. Dear Sister. I received yours & Ellas letter to day. I was very much gratified by receiving the locks of hair. I enclose one of mine in return as a holy day gift. I am still slowly gaining in strength & can eat a little better than I could. I am not so nervous as I was as you will judge by these last letter. Why dont you write longer ones. Now the last was very short. & I must say that Ellas had more news than yours.
