Camp Near Rolla Jan. 13th 1862
44 Regt. Ill. Vol.

Mrs. A.W. Woodard [sic]
I am requested by your brother to write you a few lines I am sorry to say he is now sick in the hospital though not very bad. The Doctor says he has the Billious Fever but thinks he is in a fair [way] to get along He appears in very good spirits and hopes to be out again soon.
He requested me to say that he received that express package sent to him The reason why he did not send home any mony [sic] last pay-day was the Regiment had to settle for their clothing and much of the mony [sic] was obtained. We will soon be paid off again and he wishes to know how he had better send it. Whether by mail or by Express.
If he gets worse I will inform you by mail so you will know how he is.
Yours most respectively [sic],
G.M. [Innis]
Chaplain of Regt.
