Camp Pitcher Virginia

19th January 1863

Dear Mother,

I wrote to you yesterday but to day the mail came in and in it was a letter for me from my Dear ind Mother and I now hasten to reply to it although I am afraid I can not find news enough to half fill a sheet. We have been under marching orders for some days but they have been countermanded from one day to another so that I will soon begin to think we are not going at all. I thought perhaps the reason we did not go yesterday was because it was Sunday but the orders to day are countermanded again. It can not be a move of any great account or we would not be kept in this way. There is none of the other Divisions moving either. This is a very pretty day but is rather cold but we could not expect very warm weather this time of year.

Joe Green got a letter form you to day and so did Uncle John. I tell you when I see a letter in the mail with your writing on I feel pleased for then I think there will surely be one for me but I am very often disapointed. It is quite lonesome here without Nancy. I could when she was here go down to her house and stay and talk all day and pass away the time very pleasant for she was
