Mary Louisa Fernandina
October the 12th 1860

Dear, Dear Sallie,

I have arrived here a few moments ago and hasten now to respond to your dear, dear
letter which I have just received-although I have enjoyed your agreeable society since it
has been written. Believe me Sallie although we have just parted you cannot imagine
how anxious I am so see you again. I find dear Sallie there is no pleasure for me away
from you and oh how I long to return to you. Yes Sallie my love for you is such that at
present it is almost impossible for me to live without you. I am sad dear one and the
cause is being away from the object of my affections-from the being I hold most sacred
and cherish with affection bordering almost to idolatry .

I am positive I could not endure a separation [sic] from you for any lenght [length] of
time; it would make me so miserable. I will leave this place tomorrow for the Brick
Yard. Mr. Drysdale has not returnedd. I know your Mother and you all was
disappointed in your Father not returning home. You must write soon dear Sallie and if
you answer this by the return mail address it to me at St. Mary, Georgia. If you do not
answer it by the return boat address it to me at Fernandina. My regards to all of your
family. It seems dear Sallie cruel and sinfull [sic] that two such loving [sic] hearts as
ours should be separated [sic]. You must excuse all mistakes as I am in a hurry to write
before I go up the river and now is the only opportunity [sic] I will have. Write soon.

Yours Now and Forever
Jacob E. Mickler
