The Captain got a notice to day that Frank [i.e., Sgt. James F. Fryrear, Co. K, 84th Illinois Infantry] was at Mound City. I should think Frank would write home and let them know how he gits a long he must have money for he drew 2 months pay at Nashville. he is not very mutch to write he never would write when he didnot feal like it and he hardly ever felt right he use to sleap half of his time. if any boddy spoke to him he would growl like a dog with a soar hed. ..
It seams as tho Lotts trip didnot do him mutch good. I would like to see him do well he must have mad some thing or he could not buy a farm. I suppose Shawley gits a long all right with his bird lamb on his knee. he can sing
