August 18, 1862.

Dear friends:

After waiting a long time, I conclude you are not going to write to us so I will write to you again,
Ashley has made up his mind rather than to be drafted to take up arms in defense of his country.
Consequently, he will go to-morrow to Ann Arbor to be mustered into the service.

Is it possible that he is going to war?

I cannot make it seem so. What will we do if the war Continues?

Have you heard from Albert lately and where is he?

I cannot write more.

Lavisa Juckett.

Please favor me with an early answer.
