October 26th 1862. Camp 6th Ind.
Dear father I have an opportunity to write a few lines to you this morning I am well and hope this may find you well. I received your letter of the 12th yesterday, you did not state iff you had received the money i sent by [Mr.?] Warden or not. We got our tents and knapsacks [p.2] yesterday. They did not come any too soon for last night. It snowed three or four inches deep, a pair of boots would com in good play now. If we get on some railroad so you can send me a good pair. Will not draw those government ones for they are not mutch good. We are camped eight miles from [p.3] Lebanon on the road to Munfordville. The team I was driving was turned over to the brigade Commissary. So i came back to the Company most of the boys have come back that went home. Taylor has not come back yet. I put a ring in here that emmy or mary may have, no more to day fors.
L. Bryant.
