Dear Father (Welch, Luther) .

                              I received your kind and
ever welcome letter a short time since
and will drop a line in answer to
it I also received one from Mother (Welch, Luther (Mrs., Phebe))
about the same time, so that "check"
reached you all right. well that is
good. I don't know what you had
better do with the money, pay my
old debts I guess the first thing,
I owe Truman (Truman) five dollars that he
lent me the morning that I got
home on furlough. then I believe
that I [Jame's] a "pile" for them
sheep, I don't know that I owe any
body else anything in the money line,
but arrange that matter to suit your
selfe (self), I am "not particular" as the fellow
said, I am in good health and at the
same old place yet, last evening I
received a letter from Philo (Philo) he is
not very well but seems to be in
good spirits, he think's he can stand it
four months longer, at which time


Part 2
PAGE IMAGE he proposes to meet me in old
Hebron (North Hebron, Washington County, New York) . I say "agreed" and then
at that time nervous people must
not get about us. no not a bit of it,
I am feeling firstrate as you will
see by this. but time is moving
slow slow indeed, Richmond (Richmond, Virginia)
and Lee (Lee, Robert E. (General)) 's army have gone up
and I am in hopes that a few of
the boy's in "blue" will soon
not be wanted any more, hoping
this may find you all in good
health I will close my regards
                    to all write soon and oblige

                                                                                 Henry (Welch, Henry)
