Dear Madame,

I did not think to call upon you again, as we are soon to be exchanged. I am very desirous of obtaining some few articles. I know of no one else so likely to afford my assistance as yourself. Send me whatever amount you can conveniently spare. We will be exchanged as soon as the ice disappears from the river and the transports are able to ply between this and Fortress Monroe. You will ever be kindly remembered by myself and other prisoners. We would indeed be ungrateful were we to forget kindness such as yours. Please write at your earliest leisure.

Very Truly your friend,
W. F. Robbins

Captain W. F. Robbins
Company H, 48th Alabama Regiment
