Hon. P.M. General: Washington, D.C. -- On the 15th day of April 1864 I mailed at Nokesville, a station on the O. and Alexandria RR, a letter containing a $50 green back. The letter was addressed as follows: Mrs. A.F. Bruen, Dayton Ohio Care of S. Forrer This letter never reached its destination. If it should have miscarried and turned up in the dead letter office, I am afraid my name is not written plainly enough to be deciphered. I write it here with the abbreviations L.B. Bruen I am a major the 12th Regulars and my P.O. address is either at Dayton Ohio or with my regt. and can be ascertained on application to the Adjutant General.
