I wrote Julia,
May 7th 1865
I did not write yesterday but telegraphed twice which answered every purpose, particularly as I had nothing to write. I find a great deal to do here and will yet for a few weeks. I will probably be back on Wednesday or Thursday next taking Bowers with me. I think on that occasion I shall run over to West Point for one day. I want to see all my old professors again and as they are always absent from about the 20th of June until the 1st of Sept. I will not have an opportunity of doing so at the time I propose taking you and the children there.
Love and kisses for you and the children.
