My dear Madam. Washington, May 5, 1864.
I have received the very excellent pair of socks of your own knitting, which you did me the honor to send. I accept them as a very comfortable article to wear; but more gratefully as an evidence, of the patriotic devotion which, at your advanced age, you bear to our great and just cause.
May God give you yet many happy days. Yours truly
