Soldier's Letter, 1 1/4 pages, 4to., Camp 2nd Mass. Vol. Inf., Atlanta Georgia, Sept. 25, 1864. William F. Morgan (Co. C, 2nd Massachusetts Infantry, wounded 7/3/63 at Gettysburg) writes to his wife:

"...I dont know I shall get time to finish this but I shall send it off in this mail if I dont write a half a dozen lines. There is no news only that the Paymaster is paying off our Division and we shall probably get paid this week., that of course is good news for you. The weather has been rainy for the last week but cleared off last night and we have a cool pleasant Sunday. The war news from Va. is cheering and indicates a speedy close of the rebellion and the prospect is good that we shall get out of this in the Spring or Summer. At any rate there will be no doubt of it if Old Abe is elected President for in that case the Johnnies loose their only hope. November will tell the story, and there can be but one turn I think for people cannot be so foolish as to vote for McClellan. If they do the war will last another three years...for he will give them time to build themselves up again, and we  shall have to go over the same ground again ...Foster".
