Near Brandy Station Va March 26 1864

Friend William

I have written you in reply to your first letter and directed to Annapolis but will answer yours received this night and direct to E Montpelier so you will be sure and get one of them.

I presume you got the other one before this if not please let me know and I will wri[te] you what little news I wrote in that over ag[ain]. I cannot write much tonight.

We have had quite a Snow Storm and after [that?] a rain Storm and now it has cleared off Colder Than [underline]"blazes"[/underline]. Capt Galt has not come back yet and I hardly think he will

We have a new Gen. in Command of our Division dont know his name yet. I wrote you in my other letter that I have sent your things all home, but your [warrant?] &c which I enclose to you.

please write me if you have received my letters good night

From Your Friend

This came to hand a few days since with the parchment & enrolling papers descriptive list which I suppose thee would want sent to thee. Hatche's remark about the weather made me think of George Davis who said he was all of a "wreakin' shiver". I had a line from Henry last week - he wanted information about thee & I presume has written to thee by this time - says he continues to gain finely - poor fellow I fear he can never enjoy health. I think he is the most contented & hopeful person I ever knew.

I do not see how the letter I sent to thee at Richmo[nd] ever got round so as to find thee in Annapolis. I did no[t] write many to thee there, fearing if they came too often [page torn] chance of thy getting them would be less - & I knew that [page torn] & Ann kept writing. - Orlana went ba[ck] last week - she had a grand visit home & around - Ann grew very impatient because she did not return sooner - it is vacation now & as the most of Ann's particular friends were expecting to leave she anticipated rather a dull time - it seems almost too bad that she has not come home but it costs so much to come she thought she had better not come now when the vacation is short & getting about here so bad.

John Stone & family who boarded with us about three months, moved last week onto a farm he has purchased in Wolcott - They are very consciencious upright people - We now have our hired man's wife I suppose to spend the summer with us as boarder - It is pleasant to me to retire to the east room where I have mostly spent first days, since [page torn] meeting has been discontinued - Farewell my dear - thy m[other?]
