in Covington K.Y. a place across the river from Cincinnati - I was in the hospital there about two weeks and was sent to a hospital here at Camp D. where I expect to stay until I am well enough to go to my Regt. I am getting better slowly. I would like to have seen William first rate. What did he say about Camp Randal and the place gener- ally there? Have you drinked out of that favourite hat lately? An extra- ordinary beverage that. Camp Dennison is quite a nice place, there are nearly 2000 patients here with about 60 to a hospital, which makes quite a little town, together with the depot & other buildings. It tires me to write much, so I will be obliged to bring this to a close. You must excuse this short letter & I will try & do better next time. Ans this as soon as convenient. From your friend Alfred B. Brown David to Camp Dennison, Ohio Ward 26P.S. If you have received my letter from hom lately, please tell me what is going on there I suppose you & William settled that matter in regard to my things? A.B. Brown00304
