I received your letter dated April 1st and was very glad to hear all were well. We are now 1-1/2 miles from Yorktown which we attack tomorrow (Monday). It will be a big battle & etc. and I will let you know particulars in my next. As regards myself everything is all right & etc & etc. Give my love to Mother, Gus & all the folks. Excuse writing as I am very busy issuing orders & etc & etc.
Your Affectionate Brother
