Description

Alexandria Va. June 28th /64

Dear Father & Mother.

Dr. Hood has just handed me a letter that he received from you and I now sit down to write you that I am well and still on the boat. We are stopping to coal up before going after another load. Hereafter if you do not receive a letter from me do not be worried for if anything is wrong I will write to you or get some else to do it. I have enjoyed good health ever since I cam aboard of the boat. I am well. Dr. Hood ordered me to write this to you. Answer this soon. Do not (not) be frightened so easy.

Yours
G. Murray
