Roswell Farnham to Mary [Farnham]
You see we are still here, but we are preparing to move as fast as possible. Today we are sending in everything but shelter tents.
I wish you could have stayed here a little longer - you & Mrs. Nichols & Mrs. Vaughan, but on the whole it is for the best that you went when you did. I will try & see you when I can. I will either have you come out to us or will go to see you if possible. I do not know when we shall move but soon without doubt. I think kyou had better stay about Washington until it is settled that you cannot come to us again.
I send by Mr. PeachCapt. Ormsbee a picture that I had taken this morning I want you to take good care of it.
Write as often as you can. Write by Mr. Peach when he comes out.
Had not you better go to Mrs. Butterworths
to board if you conclude to stay a week or more?
Perhaps you have made all your arrangements & I shall learn by the Adjt.
Mr. Peach will go in today & you had better call & see him. He is not very well.
Remember me to Mrs. Nichols if she is there. Keep up good courage & write often. Nelson sends love.
P. S. Enclosed I also send a letter from Henry. You can read for yourself. I would not write a word to offend any one.
I think Hen. has gone into the clothing business pretty steep. Tell him that if he wants any more money to write to you & I will send him some.
