I have just received orders to go on again "Div Officer of the day" for tomorrow (Sunday) and as I shall not have a chance to write you my usual good long Sunday letter I thought I would just drop you a line to night, to keep your spirits up until Monday when if I am not to sleepy will try to write you a good letter. there is not the first word of news to write, for all remains as usual. boys all well and I am well. what can I say now? Aint that good news enough? unless I could tell you the war was over and I was coming home soon, which I am sorry to say I cant just now. It fill the army with joy to learn of our success at Charleston. The health of the Regt. is improving very much. Are having cool nights.

As ever Yours William.
