William Haley writes from the hospital in Camp Keyes in Augusta where he is recovering from the illness he contracted in Louisana.
In this letter to his son John, age 12, his concern about his farm and family are evident. He talks about weaning the colt and cutting the wheat and includes messages for John to give to his sisters.
He asks John to "kiss billy (his younger brother) for me."
