August 29 1864

Port Royal Harbor

August 29th 1864

Dear Sarah.

As a mail will leave here to day I thought it best to pen you a few lines. We are still on board steamer and have been for eight or nine days. Would much rather be on shore as we are much crowded having some six hundred on board we left Delaware ten days ago. I have been quite sick since being here having had another attack of rush of blood to the head but I am better at this time. It seems we are waiting here to see if exchange can be made. I will write again the first chance my love to all kiss my little girls for me from your affectionate husband

  1. I must show my thanks to you just for bailing me out of this type of circumstance. After exploring through the online world and meeting views which were not productive, I believed my life was over. Existing without the answers to the issues you have fixed by means of your entire guideline is a serious case, as well as ones that could have adversely damaged my career if I hadn't noticed your web site. Your actual know-how and kindness in dealing with almost everything was very helpful. I am not sure what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a subject like this. It's possible to at this moment relish my future. Thanks for your time so much for your skilled and result oriented guide. I will not be reluctant to propose your blog post to anybody who desires direction about this matter.
