Charleston March 15/66

Dear [?],

Enclosed please find note against Wm Connor for Twenty five dollars ($25.00) which I loaned him to pay his fare home the Steamer he came on put in here to coal, he and some others went a shore and were left he had no money not a cent. And I deamed it my duty to help him all though I know what he is he says he has mony in the Brattleboro Bank and will pay you as soon as he arrives in Rutland if you get it of him please send it to Ma. I had to borrow the mony. I have not had pay in some time. My money is invested in a Store up the South Sauter and in due Bills which makes me very short, I think he will pay the note at sight if he does not you can get it when the Regiment is mustered out which will be soon I think I may be home in a month or two it is very sickly here the small pox is very bad and on the increase give my love to B[??] & May please answer Truly Yours J A Quilty
