A beautiful day, no news from home today or from any source. Feel very good Peace commmissioner from Richmond arrived today.
War news also so very good as to make my soul rejoice. Sent yesterday's paper [illegible] begin to long much for a letter
from her. My Arm very troublesome pain in the shoulder and down the arm.
Wednesday- give away and earn; Teach some truth some good thing [illegible]; Joyfully good for ill return.
