My Dear Father,
I take the privilege of writing to inform you how my health is and how I am getting along. I have been right sick but am getting better, and a getting along as well as could be expected, and I hope you are well and doing well. I would like to see you all very well and if I have no Bad Luck it will not be long till I will be home.
My regiment is in Tennessee after Hood. When I left the boys they was all well, but there was no Commission(ed) Officer with them. That two dollars you sent me - there was one of them they will not take.
The next letter you write please send me a few stamps. I want you to write to me how you are getting along with your stock this winter. I want you to buy me six calves and I will pay you as soon as I get home. So no more at present, I bid you good bye and I hope to hear from you soon.
Columbus Knapp to
his father, Samuel Knapp
