Absolom A. Harrison's Civil War Letter #14

Manchester, Coffee County, Tenn.
August 2nd

Dear wife,

I want you to get along the best you can where you are until I can get home again and be content as you can. And if you should go anywhere else write and let me know immediately but you don't know how it would grieve me to think you would go any place else after you promised me to stay where you was. Take good care of the children and kiss them all for me. I would be glad to see you all again for it appears like it has been 3 months since I left home. So nothing more at present but remaining your affectionate husband until death.

A. A. Harrison

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: It looks like there was something called the Blackberry Patch war going on between neighbors in Hardin County, Kentucky.
