Fort Hamilton Jan. 14th 1863 My dear One; Your letter of the 11th reached me this morning, after I had been longing for one since Sunday. --- I am troubled at what you write about Frank. Don't leave him if he is not perfectly well, for I fear you will be compelled to hurry back to him again if you do. I have no doubt he will miss you more than Sella, and if he should not be well, it may make him worse to be pining for you. I am anxious about him and low-spirited at the idea of not having you here with me. But my feelings must not be considered, while the health of yourself and the children is at stake. If you start on Wednesday telegraph, but write on Sunday at any rate as to the probability, fully. I will meet you at Albany I am not in the writing mood tonight thine with love and kisses, say good night L.B.B. [A letter I particularly love A.]
