My dear Major

I would have complied with your request of the 18th Ulto: earlier, but had to send to Richmond for the photograph which has just reached me.

I was very glad to perceive from your letter, that you bear your losses so manfully, & have commenced so resolutely to repair them. Wishing you every happiness & success, I am with great respect

Your obtservt
