To a distant Friend at home
I received your kind letter of the 22nd and was glad to hear from you that you were well having a good time. I received a letter from Mill the other day and I should have answered them before but I have not had time to do it before.
I was on picket yesterday so that I have to day to my self we have to stand 24 hours on picket.
We have a plenty of cloths to ware and have a good log house to sleep in and have a fire-place in it and it looks a good deal like an old farmers house with the fire place in it to make it look comfitable and plesant. I should like to send you a present but I cant get any thing to send to you and if I had I could not send it and be sure that you would get it.
I tried to rite as long a letter as you did but my mind has run short and I can not think of any more news to write to you
