Dear Jesse:

We have received your last letter and we hope that you are okay. Getting shot and then getting your leg amputated just couldn't be pleasant I imagine. Nothing major has gone on around the farm, but the neighbors did tell us that their son was killed in the same battle you were shot in. It appears that you are rather lucky on that regard. Our sons are doing fine, and they yearn to see their father again. I told them about what happened to you, and they seemed concerned. I told them that you were going to be fine and that you will return soon. I hope that by the time you receive this letter, then you will be on your way home. I cannot wait to see you again, so we can continue living out our lived the way god intended it. Free of violence and suffering, in which we and all the neighbors are happy.

Your wife

Katy
