Dear Sister
Excuse me for not writing before but I hardly know as I had out [sic] to ask forgiveness as I have not heard from you except through Mr. Miller since I left Covington but let pass as I have but little time I can not spend much time on lecturing you Since I left Louisville which was on the 1st of the month we have been on the march every day since and had one fight which was on the 8th. We were in the engagement twice during the day and I came out with out a scratch the peticulars [sic] of the battle I can not give you as I have not time and as time is short I must close excuse my writing with pencil as we had to leave our knapsacks at Louisville and my paper pen and ink were with it. but it will not be long I shall be able to give you a better account of the battle and our [march] than now my love to all [engineering friends?] the 74th has been with us since the 1st
Direct as before [&c]
Your affectionate
Bro
