Dear Kate
The Corps of Cadets leave the Institute this morning to go to Staunton t reinforce Genl. Jackson. All of us are in fine spirits – anxious to get a shot at the enemy. I will mail this letter in Staunton. Goodbye. Don’t be uneasy about me. I hope you may soon hear the enemy are leaving the valley. Goodbye
