how to let it to and see to it and
I will make it rite with him
when I come the first of next
month I will draw 20 dollars more
then I will send it to you and
so I will try to send it every
pay day I kept 10 dollars the other
pay day and if I hadent I guess
I should have starved to deth
for I had no apetite to eat any
thing but milk and butter so
I bought a quart
of milk every day and some
butter and got bread at the
cook house so I lived for some
time payed 40 bts a pound
for butter 10 bts for milk a
quart so you see it cost me
some to live but now I can
stand it to eat the stuff
at the table so I dont spend

tell what a soldier has to go
throught with in the armey

year and 4 months I have had
the cance to try it for 8 months

time I have gon for 5 days
