1862 November 7 Fort Tillinghast

[post script to the letter of Nov 6th written by Robert, and unidentified soldier in Co. M, 1st Massachusetts Heavy Artillery to his wife Priscilla, Lynn, Massachusetts]

            Friday Morn  Nov 7th
You may tell Abigal that I
am very much obliged to her for
that pie, and that I will try and
satisfy her when I come home.
That Halibut was very welcome
it relished first rate, and was very
nice. The vest I found very usefull
last night, as it was very cold on
guard, The quilt I used for an
hour or two, in the first part of the
night, and I found it very warm
and comfortable,  Its the first time
I've laid warm for a long time
more next time I write
          Yours in love

MSS 1242
