Archer, Fla. March 27th 1863

My Darling Wife-

You cannot imagine how much I miss you this time. Each time seems harder and harder
for me to separate from your dear Self. I know it is the same with you my precious One.
It is impossible for me to say how long I shall remain here. I presume it will be fifteen or
twenty days if not longer. You can answer this my Darling at this place as I am always
so very [sic] anxious to hear from you and home. Enclosed you will find some (20)
postage stamps. I purchased them in Lake City. I came from home and brought that note
against Mr. Sessions. I enclosed it in an envelope at Welborn [Wellborn] to you. I saw
at Welbom Mr. Brennan, he told me he had a letter from Mr. Kensey authorizing him to
dispose of his corn at one dollar per bushel. If such is the case my Darling your Mother
had better purchase one or two hundred bushels and we will pay for it on our return for I
would not pay out State money. Remember me to all. I hope you all are thriving as well
as circumstances will permit [sic]. I have written to your Father and Ramond by this
mail. I really do not know my Darling how I shall amuse myself during my stay at this
place. I know if will be so lonesome. I wish you were here to Share my lonesomeness
with me. After I left you My Darling I saw two large Deer feeding at the first branch on
the road to Welborn. I walked near enough to shoot them with a Pistol if I would have
had one. Oh how I wished for my gun. I am confidant I could have killed them both.

Write soon my Darling to your Husband
Jacob E. Mickler
