March 9, 1863 - Letter from Michael Henry Barckley to his Mother
7th New York Vo. Artillery, Col. L. O. Morris
Fort Pennsylvania Mch 9th 1863
Your last letter was received in due season and now hasten to answer. Enclosed with it was another letter opened. I would have been much more pleased if it had not been opened. Had it been a business letter it had better have been sent to me immediately when I could have attended to it sooner than I could after it had been opened and read + then sent to me.
Everything passes off as usual about camp.
Edd Campbell is quite sick in a hospital I shall try and get him discharged if I can as he has been sick sometime and never done much duty in the Company.
Bill Warens may get a furlough by and by if can give any good reasons for going home. But I doubt it myself.
Tell Ep??? To write to me I have not heard from him since I came back here.
All Well answer as soon a convenient.
