Camp of Mich. 2, Five Miles from West Point Va., May 12 1862. Dear Mother & Sisters: I take this opportunity to send you a few lines. You must give my letters to the girls & tell them that each must consider it to herself as I have very little time now for writing & generally when I do have time I am tired out with the days march & do not feel like writing. Tell them they can each answer my letters as though they were directed to them
