January 30, 1865
To: Charles Luke Keith Jr.
From: Edwin Crawford, Burlington, IA
Checking to see if Luke had put the spring beds in and if so to let him know and he will send the money but will do it on the sly. His health is good with the exception of his foot, which has given him a good deal of pain and trouble. The nail has come off causing him to hobble around. He thinks it will bother him all winter.
