Dear Wife
…myself and the rest of the boys are all well and in good spirits, they could not otherwise be as we have had a verry pleasant ride thus far, but in moments of relaxation from conversation or other amusements a shade of sadness could be seen over shadowing the countenance a sure indication that the thoughts of home and loved ones wer crowding on the mind to be banished onely by new scenes constantly attracting our attention and exciting admiration…
Yours in haste
J. C. Griswold
