Camp 150 Regt PV
June 24th 63
Mr. J. Hill
Cousin John yours of the 14th
came to hand this morning
and I was truly happy to learn that you was well also to say
that montgomery and my self are enjoying the same blessing,
we have had quite a long march since I last wrote to you we
left camp a week ago last friday, were on the move six days.
The first days we marched 20 the second 15 the third we
marched nearly all night and went 30 miles the next three
days we did not march so hard. I stood it all very well
except my feet they blistered and that made it very hard for
me to keep up. We are under marching orders now hove our
knapsacks packed but have not taken our tents down yet.
Do you get letters from Bell
Carringer yet for some
reason or other she has not answered the last letter I wrote
her may be I insulted her some way. I am very sorry if I
have please tell her so the next time you write to her.
You said in your other letter
that you had a mind to try
to get a furlow next fall and would like to have me come home
too for my part I have thought if I was to stay in the Army
for three years that I never would ask for a furlow but I may
change my mind befor the three years are out.
As for the hard feelings you
have in the morning I dont
know what would be good for them. The Boys say the way they
work it is to Dream them off for my part I am not troubled
much with such feelings.
We have been out Drilling
this morning we only Drill two
hours a day Company Drill in the morning and Batallion in the
evening. We haven't any Commissioned officer with us now.
The Captain is sick and our first Lieut is Detached and our
second Lieutenant resigned and ther has not been another put
in yet. I expect George Bell that is our orderly will be
lieutenant he is well liked in the Co the Boys think more of
him than they do of the Capt.
I had a letter from Tom yesterday,
the folks were all
well when it was written. Our Boys are all enjoying midling
good health, some few are under the weather. John Clark
still complaining with the lame back and side. The Doctor
examined him yesterday morning and said that he ought to be
Discharged from the service. But he cannot discharge any one
he will be apt to be sent to the invalid corps. I am well so
I will quit, hoping those hard feelings will not trouble you
hereafter so good bye John write soon.
