Dear Hubbard,

I shall be in Augusta on the 2nd Sunday in Sept. (the 13th) and would like to know if you will be at home at that time. I shall arrive in A. on Saturday and shall leave on Monday following. If there is an opportunity of my seeing you I wish to improve it – I intend to leave here next week and if you expect to be in H. at the time [...] I should be glad if you wd. inform me soon.

My dear Mr. Hubbard,

I so wish that we could hear from you – and if this reaches you won’t you please write soon. I am afraid that it will not for harry is away and I do not know that I have your address. I do not feel like writing more for this may never reach you, but if it ever does be assured that it is free of loss and sympathy.

From your true friend, Lara A. Bridgman

My dear friend.

To convince you how utterly impossible it is that my affection for you should diminish even for an instant – I sit down to answer your welcome letter the moment it is read.

You have frightened me by writing that “raids are being made almost daily on both sides.” We have felt so comfortably about you while you were in Washington that I hoped you would stay there until you came home – Oh dear! Don’t get shot!

Dear Father:

We left camp at Arlington Heights on Tuesday morning at 7 o’clock, were joined by the 27th [?] at a junction of the roads about seven miles out, went on some eight miles further and camped just beyond Fairfax Court House for the night. Wednesday morning at 9 o’clock was a brisk start and marching on some for miles further to Chantilly, our present abiding place. [...]

In haste,
Tom
