My dear Sir,
Our prospects on this question are better than they have been for many years. If you do your duty in the West there cannot be a doubt of our entire success. Have the goodness to write me all the news you have. Make my best respects to Mrs B.
Poor John has been sick for six weeks & is yet in a very serious situation.
