D. C. Trader

        Sir your note of 21 Ins is to hand  I did not fully understand
the contents and ask for information  - this amount you ask for - is
it for a publick contrabution or is it for my dues due the lodge  I
wish you to give me the amt due the lodge from me as you did not state
it in your notice or the amount asked for  I had a small brush with
the enemy on yesterday  I succeeded in gaining their rear and got into
their entrenchments 8 miles from hamburg and 5 behind farmington and
burned a portion of their camp at that place  they wair not looking
for me  I taken them by surprise   they run like Suns of Biches  I
captured the Rev Dr Warren from Illanois and one fine sorel stud  this
army is at this time in front of our entrinchments  I look for a fite
soon and a big one when it comes off  can't you come up and take a
hand  this fite will do to hand down to your children's children  I
feel confidant of our success

                                Yours Respct
