Perryville Cecil Co Md March 15th 1868 My darling Sister I promised you when I saw you last to write to you - and you must not think that not writing before was caused by any want of affection for you - the whole truth of the matter was & has been, that my spirits have been so bad, I have not felt like writing to any one except on business. I could not write to a sister and a very dear one too, without my letters partaking of my unpleasant feelings & consequently thought that a correspondence with you would be anything else than a pleasure so this is the reason & no other - I have always loved you very devotedly & taken the most brotherly interest
