Hd. Qrs. Hill's Div.
Apr. 28th 1865

Dear Genl.
I have detained the bearer of your note in order to obtain a preparation that [?] I
send you. So far as the smell is concerned otherwise the Sulphur [sulfur] Ointment is the
best. I failed in every instance to get the preparation I wanted.
If you can get 1/4 lb. of lime put it into a half Gall. of boiling water with the
Sulphur, I send you boil ten minutes & strain through a cloth. Wash well once every
day with Casteel [Castile] soap & water Then sponge with the solution of Sulphur. If
you cannot get the lime you will have to mix a tablespoonful of Sulphur with one of
lard & use it at night washing with the soap and water every morning. This smells
horridly but it is the best I can do in my present fix. I deeply sympathize with you &
weep for my country & the poor women & children. I have the horrors and am not far
from desperation. It is an awful reflection to be compelled not only to endure the taunts
of enemies, but the association of traitors & cowards, who have proven themselves
unworthy of freedom & a curse to the country. I earnestly hope to see you ere we
separate for our homes & if possible I'll visit you. Should I not be allowed the privilege,
I shall write to you after reaching my home, that was. I hope that Providence may
interpose in our behalf & yet save our country from desolation and ruin; whatever be
my fate, I shall never forget your kindness & friendship which will be reciprocated under
all circumstances, if possible.
Your true friend,
D.A. Kinchloe
Major Genl. P. Anderson
