I take the pen in hand, this morning to let you know how I am a doing. I am well at this time and I sure hope when this letter comes to hand it will find you all well.
I received your letter on October the 7th and I was glad to hear from you. But was sorry to hear that Bill Thomas was a imposing on you. You tell Bill for me. that I will bring a blood pill for him. I have orders from the Cornel to kill such men as he is and I think I can get a Furlough. When we get fixed up. For all such men as him should be put out of the way and I will kill him. When I cam we have made it to Henderson in Kentucky. I don't know how long we will stay here. The Cornel says if we stay here any time that I shall come home. We have not got our kitchen set up for us.

I wish I could be there. I would make him want the chamber pot as bad as Elen's sister Viola when she lance that cyst. I think I can get to come. Take care of the corn the best you can and I will make it right with him. And Elen had better behave herself and her sister. But away from that might mean the chamber pot. I will stop writing about Bill and Elen. I want you to do the best that you can and write as soon as you get this letter and let me know how you are a doing.
