  10. 10. Nashville Tenn Jany 5th 64Friend EttieI believe I am not indebted to you by way of letter, but for your kindness to me I will write you a few lines.It is quite cool Weather here now and some snow upon the ground but not enough to make sleighing. I wishI wish I were in Hillsdale today I think I would call around to friend Ettie and go out a Sleighing. I getlonesome sometimes and I not know what to do, if I ever get out of the Service alive I am agoing to settledown and get married.What a novel Idea that is, perhaps you will not believe it but I am not joking. I am not quite an old Bach yetbut I fear I will be before long.If you know of some good looking amiable young Lady that wish to change her situation in life, justmention the fact to her, and tell her there is a Soldier in the Army that wishes to marry in less than two yearsafter his time expires in the Army.On New Years day about one o-clock I received a verry nice gift which I appreciated verry much. It was theonly gift that I received, and on that account realize its worth. You have my heartfelt thanks for yourkindness and remembrance of a Soldier. Enclosed you will find the likeness of your unknown Correspondentwhich you will please accept, with the kindest regards.I am yoursverry truly
  11. 11. May 10th 1863.My Dear Amanda,It has been a long time since I had an opportunity of writing to you, and I gladly avail myself of the present opportunity. I am notcertain that I will have a chance of sending this but I will write a few lines any how and try and get it off to let you know that I amamong the living.We have been on a raid into Ms. but I have not time to give you the particulars of our trip. I will write in a few days if I can get achance to send it and write you a long one. I just came off of picket and found the boys all writing to send by a man that has beendischarged who is going to start home this morning. I was quite sick three or four days while in Mo. but have entirely recovered.We captured a good many prisoners while in Mo. and killed a good many. We went up as high as Jackson 8 or 10 miles above CapeGirardeau. We fought them nearly all day at the Cape on Sunday two weeks ago today. The yanks boasted that we would never getback to Ark but they were badly mistaken, for we are back again and have sustained but very light loss, we never lost a man out ofour company and only one or two out of the regt. I wish I had time to give you a full description of our trip. It would be veryinteresting to you I know; but you will have to put up with this little scrawl for the present. I am in hopes that I will get a wholepackage of letters from you in a few days. I never wanted to see you half as bad in all my life as I do now. I would give anything inthe world to see you and the children. I have no idea when I will have that pleasure. We cant get any news here - do not know whatis going on in the outside world. The boys will all write as soon as they get a chance to send them off.We will remain in this vicinity, I expect for some time to recruit our horses. Our horses are sadly worsted. We found plenty to eatand to feed our horses on in Mo but hardly even had time to feed or eat as we traveled almost insesantly night and day. We could getany amount of bacon of the very best kind at 10 cts and every thing else in proportion.I must close for fear I do not get to send my letter off. Write offten I will get them some time. I will write every chance, do not beuneasy when you do not get letters, for when we are scouting around as we have been it is impossible to write or to send them off ifwe did write. Give my love to the old Lady and all the friends. My love and a thousand kisses to my own sweet Amanda and ourlittle boys. How my heart yearns for thou that are so near and dear to me. Goodbye my own sweet wife, for the present. Direct toLittle Rock as ---.As ever your devoted and loving Husband, J.C. Morris.Mrs. A.N. Morris.
