Murray, Iowa, Aug. 11, 1894
B. F. Thompson.—Dear Comrade: Your kind invitation to meet with the 112th at the annual reunion in Galva, on the 22nd inst. was duly received. I should like to meet the boys and sake hands with them, but I am so crippled with rheumatism* that it is impossible for me to go.
My best wishes to all the comrades.
