At School, Friday July 10th [1863?] Dearest- I recd your welcom letter of the 4 a few minuets ago. I also rec'd one on Monday, but as I had just written to you I thought I would wait till I heard from you. You can not tell how glad I was to get your letters. I was not expecting one to-day but it was an agreeably surprise.
I hope you will forgive me for my unjust accusation and I will not do so any more without good reasons but I thought I had this time for you had spoken in one or two of your letters that you thought if you was gone a little while longer you would forget all about home and I did not know but you wanted to and thought you would quit writing but we will let that go with the things that is past
