Officers Hospital Update

In a July 8, 1864, letter to his mother, William reports that he is doing better, but in unlikely to be ready for duty for some time.  He writes about taking the water-cure when he gets home and trying to get back some of the health he has lost during the past three years.  He also reports that Nashville is a beautiful place, but very hot.  Finally, he notes that he has not heard from Robert Patterson, but believes he is doing well.  (Note:  A portion of the letter is missing)
