Head Qrs. 2d Div. 6th Corps March 30th 1863

Dear Mother:

Though I have not received a letter, from home for more than a week, I must write thee. Though I have not much news to write it makes no differrence. I am very well still; indeed better than is my wont. My appetite is very good and this is usually the case with me in the Army as it was while I was at home. I have not [underline]ended[/underline] a meal, without just as good an appetite as when I commenced it since I came here to stop.

I have not heard from Henry since I wrote thee, last. I do not get to Washington yet, to see him. Our Mess has just got a going to-day. The Chest came containing Stove, Kettles, and complete cooking utensils for a family of eight, and the whole packs in a box not much larger than the last one you sent me Stove Pipe and all. Four of us mess together and baked potatoes and warm biscuit and butter go first rate. There is some preparing for a move, going on most every day, but I do not think we shall go this week, though we may have such orders

at any time. Does it seem as if March was most gone? Suppose your are making Sugar some, but do not know about it. I have been eating some this evening which has just come from Montpelier, to the Lieutenant, Hatch, by name.

He is a Son-in-law of A. D. H. Caldwell and a Cousin of Mary True.

He is now in bed at my elbow and as it is late I must join him.

Excuse haste. Write soon.

Ever as ever
