1864 Letters

April 21, 1864 letter to Luke Keith from Hiram Crawford Jr.

April 21, 1864 

To: Charles Luke Keith Jr.

From: Hiram Crawford, Brandy Station, VA

Arrived from recruiting station on February 18. Has written to Mother, Sarah, Jennie, Henry, Robert, David and Prosper and seems irritated that he hasn’t received any response from any of them. Sent $168; wants Luke to put $150 of it in a drawer someplace until he needs it. There has been lots of rain. When it is not raining the time is passed in reviews, inspections, and drills.
