Camp at Warrenton Junction

April 19th 1864


Got his warrant and will send it home so it wonŐt wear out in his pocket.  All the boys in the regiment were examined for the Navy but not him because his papers hadnŐt come so he will go again tomorrow but Ňthey examine the applications pretty strict but I am going to try for it hardÓ.  Report is they will move Friday, they have getting ready for a week.  He was playing ball and hurt his little finger so badly the doctor excused him from duty.  Back page is to his father saying he thought it would be safer to send it to him to give to Clara.
