[Letter]
Camp Near Jacksonville, Fla.
March 12, 1864

Dear Father
I have just time to write a word-only.

Am full of business-Pay Rolls, etc., to make out. This writing with other duties-
Picket, etc., leaves but very little time for rest. But, I'm tough.

If you can get a "New Bedford Mercury" Feby 26, you will find an article in relation to
this expedition to Florida. Speaks of Lieut [Lieutenant] Durand with his Co. landing
first, etc. One of the Officers saw the paper-I knew nothing of it.

Have your letter and Mother's before me. Was just as happy as am always in reading
your letters dates of Feby 28. (244)

Yes-I have a good deal of care for one so young. Guess I can stand it if nothing breaks.

Am very well-Love to all at home
Affc'ly Your Son
C. M. Duren
Lieut. Co. "D"
