Hagerstown July 15, 1861

Dear Col.

Reached H. safely - all quiet here, weather damp –harvest going on slowly - most of the wheat still out- so not much, I think could be done here for a day or two and since you are rid of your pest [& priest?] I would suggest that you remain in Williamsport till you can finish your business satisfactorily. In the mean time I will do all I can.

All the troops, except our regiment, has moved on from Martinsburg. The Penn 2 Reg disbanding [a week?] from tomorrow.

I go to Camp Patterson tomorrow morning, & must consider your offer of your horse as a standing one and use it. God bless you.

Most sincerely
C.H. Russell
