Letter from Jacob Bruner to Martha J. Bruner
			
May success attend them and fortune smile propitiously upon them 
in their attempt to break up the rebel stronghold at that place.  
There are many in that regt. whom I love and respect and I almost 
pained in tearing myself from them but I can better serve my 
country in the position to which I now occupy than I could there 
so I am content.  May the happy moment soon come when I shall 
clasp the friendly hand of those with whom I have shared the 
hardships and toils of a soldiers life as we shall meet at our 
own happy homes when peace shall again reign over our country.
But I must gossip a little with you now.  I have just dropped in 
from Millikins Bend to chat a few moments with you.
