[written above date] Stanton General Hospital Washington D.C.
Beautiful morning but wind very wrathy. Almost [illegible] tornado unroofing houses and doing much injury to Shipping. Continued
success of our armys. Gold down to $1.38. Received a good cheering letter from my Betrothed dated March 18th in the Evening
answered the same. Also sent [illegible] of Lennysons Poems in three vols. Felt much better. But could not work.
