Letter from Jacob Bruner to Martha J. Bruner
			
Millikins' Bend La 
9th Regt. La Vols.
May 7, 1863


Dear Wife,

I am well.  The weather is remarkably fine the forests are 
clothed in their full lining of green and all nature seems to 
smile.  
Business in the way recruiting is dull I do not believe we will 
be able to fill the regiment until Vicksburgh is taken.  I have 
received no mail of any kind since I have left the 68th.
There are several officers including Col. Lieb now in front with 
the army recruiting he may bring a goodly squad when he comes in 
he has been absent about a week.  
J.C. Banks, Joseph Longberry and Joshua Dicus ran the blockade at 
Vicksburgh; and also Wm Barnhurt [?] he was one of the pilots.  
They went through on the the steamer Empire City I believe. They 
all volunteered.  Brave boys!  It was a hazardous task.  
Part of our army is said to be in rear.
