James S. Wise [1830–1890]

The rebels were here not long ago. Two of our gunboats captured this spot before our arrival. After months at Camp Dennison, and now to arrive at the front, the boys are restless. They are anxious to see battle. I fear they will not have long to wait.

I hope you and Ida are well. I miss you both and hope we shall soon be together again. With all my love.

Your husband,

James
