[conclusion of the letter begun by Hiram Cash of the 5th Maine on August 27]
Nothing of importance has transpired today. I have
not resieved my pay yet but I expect it every day the have
made out the pay roll and we shall in a few days get two months
pay there is some in this regt that say we are coming home t his
month Sept. but I do not think it is so yet and I hope it is not
unless this war comes to an end, we shall probably know how the
case stands in a week or two at the most.
