Camp near Washington D. C.
Kune 13, 1865

Dear wife,

I take my pen in hand to inform you that I am well at present. I hope when these few lines come to hand, they will find you in the same state of health. I received your kind letter today. I was glad to hear from you and that you were all well at that time.

You stated in your letter John Feather came home and that he was drunk. I shall never drink that much whiskey in my life, I don’t think. I think we will leave for Harrisburg this week. I haven’t time to write much. I must get supper. Nothing more at present but remain your dear husband, — Jacob C. Claar

To Christina Claar

Take good care of my two boys Aus

in Claar and Samuel Claar
