Annapolis Junction, Md., November 24/61

Dear [?]

Your letter telling me of your good fortune in getting privilege of leaving Ill. for a season came just as we were breaking up our camp on the R.R. & I assure you that I was much rejoiced to hear that you had a prospect of a change before you. I know that you will like the change & I am certain that twill do you much good. I am sad that you do not think it my duty to go to [?] this winter. Well we do agree on some points. I know how hard tis for one to get away for even a day & to get to Ill. was an impossibility. I suppose ere this you are safe on the banks of the old Genesee & does it look natural & have you been to Portage? & did you see any little boys with blue checked aprons on? I would really like to see that country again & hope that I can get away long enough for a flying visit. I spoke to my Capt. & he thought I could go after New Years. Still I do not dare to hope for fear that twill be so I cannot go. Since I have joined this Reg. I have been off duty only 3 days- then you saw me. I want you to tell me all about where you are & how you are suited & all about the people of your place, &c. Write me a newsy letter with such additions as you may deem proper. You will consider my case regarding that picture. Bates leaves if tis not here in 10 days! What is Grandmother [?] opinion regarding your leaving home. Did she present you with a parting discourse & some dough nuts. But seriously I am glad you are away & my men said I did not scold nor find fault with them the whole day when I recd. your last wonderful [?]. I have written no less than 12 letters this P.M. & you will excuse priority.

As ever,

Wm. [?]

Very fine.
