to and from
Sergeant Joshua B. "Bud" Hill

This letter was written from Mary Ann Hill to her son Joshua B. Hill.
Some spelling is corrected, and punctuation added.

(the outside of the letter after being folded)

Letter 2

This letter was from George Hill to Joshua B. Hill.
Emily Hill added a poem at the end. Some words were left misspelled and
others were corrected for readability. Most of the punctuation was added.

Envelope:
Postmarked from Washington N.C., Mar 19.
In pencil the envelope is marked: "Recd Mar 19th, 1862".

(The poem is written in another hand, presumably Emily's, but the introduction,
"Your Heart Full Sister Emily", was written in the hand of George Hill.)
