WILLIAMS FAMILY LETTERS- #16
Abiel to John
Bivouack Two Miles
March 8th, 1865
Yesterday while out on the road here I recd. a letter from you. We, or the commanding Generals seem to be in no hurry to move this morn.
We have really commenced the campaign now. Expect the intention being I think to join Sherman1 in the interior. That is if we do not meet to large a force and are kept back which I think doubtful.
I have a little money I do not care to have about me which I put in this letter ($20.) twenty dollars. Those photographs I hope will not come at present.
Mr. Pratt seems so still like to trade. Our Chaplain here Dodd2 appears to be acquainted with Mr. Pratt.
I have not time to write more at present
From your aff. Bro.
Abiel P. Williams
Direct as before.
