Headquarters Eleventh Corps, Near Middleton, Ma
I have received another good long letter from you written just after Maj Whittlesey and Mrs. W’s visit. I am glad they came to see you. I got a letter from Major Whittlesey at the same time. [...] I am afraid you are working too hard or doing too much. Shopping you know is very dangerous.
We are working along up towards you. The rebels are again bothering us and home. [...]
