Topeka Kansas

3 o clock P. M

Dear Brother

Enos is about the same as he was when I last wrote. I do not think there is much hope of his recovery still he may. He has every attention that he could have at any place if he should get well I will send him home as soon as he is able to travel.  I have nothing of importance to write
