Letter from Jacob Bruner to Martha J. Bruner
Hissony is absent recruiting.  The 68th has been fighting since 
she left I believe but I have not heard any news form her in 
Did you get 30 dollars which I sent you on pay day?  and did you 
get nine dollars which Mrs. J.S. Snook was to pay you?  At me 
know in your next letter without fail.  As I have written you 
before I intend to be at home before Sept 30th or will send you 
how would like to spend tow or three months down her in Dixie 
with me in some comfortable house?  Alex never writes I have 
rec'd one letter from him since I have been in the service!
I wrote to Jas Jewel not long ago but no answer yet.  I am glad 
that Ella and Jennie and attending school.  What school are they 
attending?  Learn them to work too it is of no less importance 
than education.  Can Ella sew any.
Tell her she must learn to sew well enough to sew a button on for 
me or hem a handkerchief! (When I come home) My dear wife I have 
nothing interesting to write at this time but simply do so to let 
you know that I am  well and to make an enquiry about that money 

No more
