[clipping above date]: "Now comes July, and with his fervid noon Unsinews Labour."
Today was received by Dr. White and another surgeon and they certified that I was [not] fit to travel to Washington and extended
my furlough twenty (20) days [given]. Uncle had the misfortune to book his [illegible] this afternoon, but I am glad that
I am shy and move him and still have the [company] of my loved Judie.
To Judith [clipping below]
<May thy life be happy, love, placid as the summer sea; like the quiet evening hour may thy thought as peaceful be.
And as time goes gently on, may no sorrows shade thy brow; but each hour be fraught with bliss, bright and joyous e'en as
And when life is ended here, may thou gently sink to rest; sweetly pass away from earth, leaning on the Saviour's breast.>
