Interesting Home-Front A.L.S. 4to. 2 pages, Springfield, Illinois, September 7th 1864, concerning happenings in and around Wisconsin. In part: "I am glad to hear of your recovery from your wounds. Where did your father leave you when he went to Nashville after you? Mr. Hill says he left you part way home. I was in hopes that you would come down and see me before you went into the Army again but you did not say anything again about it in your letter. Andrew - you sent me your picture before you went to the War and I gave it to Harry's girls when I was out there...and Libby gave me another one when I was at your place. Charley Gilbert's corpse was brought home (Saturday) I believe from Memphis...he was in the 40th Regiment. His family did not know he was dead until his corpse arrived home. He died with Dysentery. PS - Tell your Mother that butter is 35 to 40 cents here. Condition: Visual folds (as expected) from the passing of the letter from one relative to another - otherwise in very good condition.
Condition: Very Good
