Headquarters United States Forces,
MARTINSBURG, VA.
Dec 31 1864
My dear Mother
I know of
no reasen now why it would
not be entirely safe for you
and Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
to come up with
Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
next week. If anything
should occur to make me change
my mind I will telegraph you
I think we can make you quite
comfortable at my house and shall
be very glad to see you. If Father
does not wish any public demonstration
as I suppose he does not I think
you had not better mention that
he is coming
Please ask Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
what date the interest on
10-40 Bonds is due Nov 1st & May 1st or
Jan 1st & July 1st? Your affectionate son
Will
