Washington Jan. 22. 64 My Dear Wife: I reached this city this morning without accident or much delay. The trains were generally behind time, but I only missed the connection at *Bellaire*. There was very little snow from the latter place on to *Bellaire*-- indeed there is more here, and apparently more has fallen since I left. I have seen no one who can tell me of the whereabouts of my regiment. I expect now to remain here until to-morrow but am not certain. Should there be a passenger train this afternoon I shall probably take it if I have time. --Excuse brief as I do not feel like writing-- being *just and* decidedly homesick #Love is all for you... as ever L.B.B.#
