Fernandina Florida
November the 13th 1860

My dearest Sallie

I arrived here about eight o'clock tonight and Oh how much I miss your dear Society
already. To meditate that it will probably be fifteen or twenty days before we meet again
makes me so very [sic] miserable. I have only dear Sallie to get out of your dear sight
before I wish myself back again. I am going to leave this place in a few hours for the
Brick Yard. My object dear Sallie in hurrying is that I may so much sooner return to you
my dear girl. I do most anxiously hope dear Sallie that long long before you receive this
letter you will be entirely cured of your cold. In your respond [response] to this you must
certainly inform me how you are getting along with your cold as I shall be uneasy until
[sic] I hear from you dear one. Believe me Sallie that I would rather be prostrated with
the most dangerous disease than even hear that you are indisposed. Oh how I wish this
was my last trip for the present to return to you who is the very life of me. To take you
away from me would be to take the very breath of which I breathe. Yes My Sallie I
hope this separation [sic] will not continue much longer oh how anxious I am for the 24th
of December to arrive so that we may be pronounced] man and wife. Then Sallie my
happiness will be complete not before. Remember me to your Father, Mother, Brothers,
& Sister they all will soon be the same to me as they is now to you. Write soon dear
Sallie as I am so anxious about your dear health. Good night dear one hoping [sic] your
dreams will be haunted tonight by,

Your true and faithful lover
Jacob E. Mickler
