Isaiah Conley Civil War Correspondence, July 2, 1865 (Ms2015-051)


NewBern N.C. July 2,1865 My Dear Carrie, I wrote about a week ago, that we expected to start north in a few days, and that I would not write again until I reached Harrisburg; but we have been delayed longer than I expected- waiting for transportation. We have been Mustered out, but go to Harrisburg as a regiment to be paid. We expect to leave here on Teusday [sic] (4th) for Morehead City, where we will take a boat for the north. If we meet with no unexpected delay we will be in the state in a week from now. And at home inside of two weeks. My health is very good. Write and direct to Harrisburg. Your Affect’y Husband I. Conley
