My dear Sisters,

My orders came this morning & I will be in Balt. Sunday morning to take the [Comp.?] on the Balt. & Ohio Road Sunday eve.  I wish you would buy me 8 or 10 good coloured shirts, ready made, and a dozen pair of good _____ socks, & have them ready for me by Monday.

Love to all.

Your affectionate

Brother, John F. Reynolds


Miss Ellie Reynolds,

I will see you all Sunday, of course.
