                       College Hill Feb    28th 1864

My Dear Mother
                          Charley and Joe arrived
here yesterday. I imagined yesterday morn-
ing that Charley would be out in the after-
noon so after dinner I heard the brass horn
and went out on the porch and stayed
for about an hour and Mr Vail came out
and I asked him if the brass had come
yes he said it was just going to the city
and came up here for passengers so I came
up to my room and Gus and Marry Hal-
liday came up and Millie Bradbury and we
were having a very pleasant time and I
heard some one running up the stairs fit to
break her neck and come in my room
not stopping to knock and it was Maria
Campbell  Mary & Rics roomate she
was clear out of breath and she says
Mary one of your brothers and two other
