                        Philadelphia, Pa.

 

                                             Camp on James River, July 23d./62

        Dear Sir:

                        I am glad to learn you are getting better - I have

        no doubt that (there may only) your leaving here was a

        matter of urgent necessity and that you could not have

        recovered had you remained.

                                                    Your father I understand, left

        here with the steamboat a week ago for a further supply

        of materials which were urgently needed. He said nothing

        to me concerning his intentions, plans, etc. I informed him

        by note that I understand the supply of materials on hand

        would last only ten or 15 days and that you were

        responsible for heat making.

            Thank you for the account of your voyage to

            South Carolina.

                                                Very respectfully

                                                    Your obedient servant

                                                        AA Humphreys
