Officers have just gone. I always get tired attend ing a recitation. Yet I like them. I always had one every evening when not interrupted by duties since I have been a field officer. My health is good but my men are dying some. They are careless after being sick & get down again. Good night my sweet wife. I love you truly & want you in my arms. Darling angel I do love you, Be a good girl & love yr fond husband.

Wheelock Regards.
