Richmond. Augst. 20th. 1869.

Dear. Mary,

You will doubtless be surprised to
hear from me in Richmond, but such was
my luck to be taken so sick upon the cars
that when I arrived here, it was with great
thankfulness that I took myself to bed.

To day I have come out and feel
much better, I may say quite well. In the
morning I shall take the train for Louisa
and directly I get there will try and write
you a better letter than this.

I miss you dreadfully my darling - much
more than words can express.

Give my love to your Pa & Ma
and kiss the little pride of my heart
for me.

Yr Devoted Husband.
Geo. S Vest.

To
Mrs. M C Vest.
