Wmsburg, 15th June, 1861
My very dear Wife:
I have another opportunity to drop you a line by Col. Stuart, who goes on furlough for a few days. He boards at the Edgemont House and is a nice gentleman and has been with us all the time, and if you could get him and his wife to take tea or dinner with you he will tell you all about me and what is going on.
Please see that my shoes ordered of Page are sent to me by him. The weather is hot and must close.
Jno. S. Walker
In great haste.
