Michigan Civil War Collection

Corinth May 6th 1862 My Dear Cousin Your most welcome letter was recived several days since, and I should have answered it sooner had I not been out on a scout when it came. I assure you I was happy to receive it in fact I am always glad to hear from you Cousin Eva you are allways so kind to me for which I shall ever feel grateful Both myself and horse were completely worn out. We were out seven days and nights during the time we did not take the saddles off of our horses.
