Dear Wife

I leave immediately for South Carolina whence ‘tis thought we will be exchanged I shall write you the first opportunity I have requested Lieut Robinson of my Company K write you of my leaving owing to the recent regulations restricting correspondence to wives, mothers &c he may not be able to do so. Tell Mr. Bibsly (?) I received his message relative to the quantity of water allowed him for washing purposes. Remember me kindly to Gus and all friends and believe me

Fondly Yours

Henry A. Allen
