With Mrs. J. B. Wolfe letter 7/27/64

Camp Butler, Ills. July 29 1864.

Gov. Yates:

Hon. Gov:

I am just in receipt of a letter from my wife (Mrs. Wolfe) who informed me of her communication to you concerning my whereabouts and health &c. Her uneasness was occasioned by my illniss when leaving home about two week go and her failure to hear from me as she had changed Post Office address from Clinton to Atlanta on a visit. I hope that you have been at no trouble, for I am aware that your high appreciation of the service of our country and deep sympathy for those who are engaged in the struggle for her preservation would induce you to do much &c &c.

I have the honor to be, der sir.

Very Respectfully

Your Obt. servt

J. B. Wolfe Jr.


Wolf. J. B.
