Camp at Fair Oak VA
Dear and well Rememberd Friend,
Your very kind and interesting letter of the 13 came to hand yesterday and oh you cannot immagine how glad I was to hear from you I had not got a letter from home Since the battle and I thought you was all dead. I also got a letter from Mother yesterday So I feel pretty well Satisfide at present. Juliana do be as contented as you posibly can a bout Tilton for I think he is as Safe as can be. I am Shure he was not killed for we was all over the battle field where he was See[n] last and wher[e] our compiny fought and not a Sign of him could we find. And if he had of been wounded they would not of took him for they did not take any of our wounded for they had a nough to do to get there own a way. There was an orderly Surgant in compiny E Wounded and there was a young fellow by the name of Larimer was taking care of him and the Rebbles came and took Larimer and Stuck up a Shelter tent over the wounded man and left him there. This Larimer was a guide the Same as Tilton was. Him and Tilton both Staid in one tent when was as head Quarters So Tilton will not be a lone if he is a prisner. There was 3 more out of our Co. prisoners John Osburn [Osborn] for one.
