May 4, 1861

Letter of James F. Ramsey

Fort Warren  May 4, 1861.
Dear Mother  I received the bag after I had sent you the letter   I thank you for the cake and apples  I do not
care much about the cake because we have very good meals.  I am getting along very well and think soldiers life agrees with me.  Two companies of the Webster regiment arrived yesterday.  Alonzo Haley belongs to one of the Companies and is here,  the men in our battalion do not like to go with the men in the Webster regiment they hold them at arms length there are some Irish among them.

I have not much time to write now  Give my love to all  kiss Hugh for me  Good by
      from your son,
             J.F. Ramsey
