You are in almost every sense all I have, God in mercy [illegible] you. If this should ever reach you, I suppose it was until this [illegible] is decided, but I do if you are called into action you will be thoughtful [and] [illegible] [and] [illegible] all necessary [illegible] that you see [and] I hope you won't wear that [illegible] red sash. I have much-
