Letter from Frank to Fanny Hall. Camp Near White Oak Church, Va.
May 1st, (1863)
Camped at the very banks of the Rappahannock. Washed in it this morning, own dear wify. All well. I am very well, had a splendid sleep last night. Plin Moore & I measure the distance across with a comb, taking the angle & the altitude for the water & c. & c. Good fun.
