Girard June 15th 65
I am now at your house & as Caroline wishes me to write you a few lines to let you know that she has just heard from you. I am now a citizen of the U.S.A. having received the American Buzzard recognizing me as such last Thursday. We were mustered out in Washington on the 2nd of June. I expect you were there before we left but I did not know it or I would have tried to found you. Caroline & the children are all well & in fact all the friends are well as
Letter 5 Side 2
near as I can learn. I am in a good deal of a hurry & I have not time to write very much. I am in hopes you will be discharged before very long & I think you will be at home by the Fourth of July. I have no time to write any more. Caroline sends you two dollars write to me as soon as convenient.
