Fort Richardson, Virginia
December 14, 1861

My Dear Wife,

I will not try to write much this time for I have not got time so I will only try to make you think that I am thinking of you. I have written to Father. His letter will start with this. I hope this will find you well. Give my love to all. Good night my little pet.

Excuse this. From your husband, — Chet
