Mothers Letter of 19th Sept. saying you was raising a company for the War. I am very glad to hear it but did not want you to accept a lower position than Captain. and if you succeed in getting a Company, be strict and firm with them and make Solders of them. You will be a good officer I know and I shall hope to hear a good account of you. Keep me posted in regard to your movements as I shall watch the movements of your Regiment with interest. If you do not have money enough to pay your recruiting Exps. borrow it and I will send it to you immediately
