In the Wilderness May 7th 4 PM My Dear Wife: Here I am out in the front - the frontier part of the army. We came out to *shove* the enemy, only about *one* thousand strong - but we have not found many of them. There are three or four guns not far from us which fire shells over us and hit us every once in a while, but we have had few casualties. I am well, in good spirits and dirty as a pig. Good bye dearest Thine L B Bruen We have been fighting them *three* days with varied success - not much *doing* to day here. May 7th 1864
