My dear Sister,

     I have not written to you for some time and as I now have the opportunity of sending a letter by Flag of Truce I avail myself of it -- I am over here on my way back to Richmond. I have been up to see my Tannery about 20 mils up the South Side RR. I left Richmond last Monday and spent 3 days up at the Yard. I am right well pleased with my prospects up there & hope to do a right good business -- I will have very little time to attend to it myself but my arrangements are pretty complete & I hope it may get along pretty well without me. The season is very backward here and the country looks pretty bleak yet -- I enjoyed the 3 days very much altho' I was very busy all the time. We are not near so busy in Richmond this spring as we were last, and my duties are much lighter. I will retain my situation there & try and get off a couple of days each mo. to attend to the Yard. Lum [i.e., Christopher Columbus Shriver] is very well -- Have you heard anything of J. S. [illeg] & P. D. -- We heard they had been captured. Hoping that you are all well & that we will soon hear from you & with much love to one & all at home & to all enquiring friends I am as ever Your affct Bro


NB Tell Boyles that Scott is well & doing well

P.S Kindest regards to Dr K & family
