On the Road between Chicago & Adrian Mich
I wrote you a letter last night, but did not send it. I will send it with this.
This morning I was busy, from the Time, we had breakfast, till we left. I went to the Marine Hospital & to the General Hospital, Getting together Bill Prices things & Doing Errands for the Cap.
We were ordered into line at 1,30 PM, & marched about 3/4 of a mile to the Mich Southern, there we laid until 6 PM, almost Froze to Death. About 6 M, we left Chicago in tip top Passenger Cars. This is something like traveling. I shall try & Post this at Cleveland. We have four Days Rations of Beef & Soft Bread.
6 AM. This is better than I expected. We have had a pretty good time on the Road, though but little chance to sleep. We arrived in Toledo at 7,30 AM. there we had some Good Coffee. We left Toledo, for Cleveland, after changing Cars. We left Toledo about 12.
I shall send this letter by Lieut Moor, he says, he will do any thing he can for me. I very much doubt whether we are Exchanged or not. I will write you again as soon as we get to Washington
Love to all
