Civil War Diaries and Letters of
Eugene William Rolfe, Tunbridge

Camp Lookout, March 18th 1865
H. P. Rolfe

Dear Brother, I received your kind letter of the 14th last night and was glad to hear that you was well. I received yours of the 12th day before yesterday and by your tell I should think that you had pretty good times at town meeting but I like the selectmen that they have got this year. I am expecting another letter for you before many days. I want to find out who the constable superintendent and the rest of the principal officers are. I do not see why it is that Eddie has not got that letter. I wrote it the 2nd mailed it the 3rd. I wrote to mother Jan 29th and to get the 31st in Feb. I wrote the 2nd, 6th, 13th, 23rd, March 8 and the 13th sending a couple of photographs, one of Milo's and one of Den Dunham's. Tell ---- that I sent a letter to him in one to Ed Hutchins and few days ago. Tell him that I am much obliged to him for his photograph. When I get paid off, I am agoing to send all that I get home after I pay my debts and line on my rations only I shall have to drink tea but when I want any I can send home. I shall do as your say about it in your past script. The next time you write, let me know what uncle Jerry done with his money. You must excuse this short letter as I am agoing to write to Eddie. Please write soon and accept this with the best respects of Eugene Rolfe.

PS Tell Hutchins to write as soon as he gets around to it and you find out where to direct to him and office. E. W. R.
