Our P/M handed me your letter you wrote him on the 26th.I am living next door to the office. I showed the letter to brother John and Luther.They are both living in town.Brother John has a list of the company that he has been getting up for last year or more and, I send you a copy of it, and you will, no doubt, remember quite a number of them.I will get John to write you a long letter and he will give you all the news he can.
I remember the time you were wounded and, I think, fell in the Yankee lines.If I mistake not, you had large bone taken out of upper part of arm.
Would be glad to have a long letter from you.Give us all the news, how you are getting alone, etc.
Yours Respectfully, L.P. Henkel
(This letter was written to John H Argabright, 10th VA Cav, who was then living in Oglesby, TX)
