My Dear Mr. Irwin
I was so pleased to receive your most kind and encouraging letter this morning and can assure you that I fully appreciate its contents. Glad all things are going so well with you and delighted to hear that it is your intention to write a Book in connection with the late war. I am sure the Boys will be pleased to give you any experiences they can. Well I should be glad to assist you in the matter and shall do so as soon as I feel strong enough at the present time my Nurses will not allow me and I feel so awfully weak. Thank God I am able to sit on a chair an hour or so each day and having been under the Blankets so long it will take a while before I get my Sea Legs and strength back and I trust he who rules all things will continue is goodness to me and I am thankful I am spared as I have has as you know a very anxious time. I am pleased to hear my people are all well. I shall some day I hope have the pleasure of meeting all my dear old friends one again, what mild weather we are having just now. We will soon have seed time and Harvest how the time passes. I must now conclude as I feel awfully tired to night. All good wishes again thanking you for your kind letter.
Yours very Sincerely
