Lee Barracks
February 21st/63

Dear Father
This morning
I express you my valise con
taining such articles as I
do not wish to take with
me. I have concluded not
to carry it with me as
it is most too good to
throw away when we are obliged
to take the field. In it you
will find a box containing
two portraits of myself
intended for you, also two
rolls, one of them you will
please hand to some of Mr
Jarvis’s folks the other one
please keep.

Sparks which please hand
to some of Spencer’s folks.
Yesterday Newt and I
expressed two certificates
framed sent to Mr Jarvis
one of them is for you and
the rest of our folks the charges
are paid on that, but having
nothing Smaller than a
ten dollar bill I shall not
pay the charges on this.
I hope you will receive
the money that I sent you
Thursday morning.
We are almost ready to
leave for Washington and
will start some time
