Yours rec'd last night. The let up & somewhat favorable condition mentioned in my letter of Sunday still continues. Have not the slightest idea of hastening to W[ashington]—Shan't come till I get good & ready. Continue to write often. Wish Ch. Whitman refers here to Charles Eldridge. to write me all news, & oftener.
