My Dear Boy Michael

I know you are anxious to hear from me. I would have wrote you before but have been so undicided to know what I am going to do my self. theYellow Fever is so bad I may yet come back to Baltimore and if I do then I will arrange to send you away. if not I will write you in a few days what to do.

I hope you are all O.K. Write me to. Charleston. S. C. on receipt of this. Give my kind   regards to Your Father Mother & the family

And beleive me your friend

W. F. Cody
