Alfred B[radley] Brown
with you, that the time is not far distant, when I shall again meet my friends at home. I heard a fine Preacher preach last sunday, (there is a [Tenn Regt.?] camped here) his sermon was very god. I guess John the folks up there would think it quite a treat to hear a Tennesseean preach, would'nt they? We are having a young snow storm here, however I dont think it will last long. I believe there is very little snow in these diggings, it has been beautiful weather since I have been here. I received a letter from Dave a short time ago, and was surprised to hear that he was a clerk or in the counterjumping business as he calls it. I have just received a paperfrom home giving a list of the drafted men in Marquette Co. Chancey Strong is one drafted in B. [illegible] and John R. Duncan Robert Graham and several others I know. You said you would like to make me a visit, I would like first rate to have you, so come along & make me a call. Well John I must close this short letter. Good bye. I am truly your friend Alfred B. Brown608[P.S.?] Excuse this short letter. I trust I shall have something of more interest to tell you next time I write. Please write me soon, & as often as you are a mind to. A.B.B.
