Status: Needs Review

Sanitary Commission, "Camp Parole"
Annapolis, Mar. 24th 1864

Dear Mother:

Thine of 3d, [6?]th [&?] 20th is just re-
ceived and as at the first of the dates thee
calls my letters short & unfrequent I will
allow no time to pass unnecessarily, till
I answer this one. I thought, when I came
here that we should all be able to come
home, on furlough, soon, but found
men here who were paroled four mos.
before, who had not been able to get away
yet; so I got over my anxiety on the sub-
ject as well as I could; in spite of this,
I intend to come home if there is any
chance for it, but you need not look for
me before the last of next month.

I was very anxious to be there during
the sugar Season but gave it up some
days since, and depend on The [Express?]
for my share of sugar this year.

We are not exchanged yet, and only the
ones who were paroled before Sept. 1863 are,
so we are to stay here for orders
