Dear Wife and Children (excerpt]

We are laying opposite to Frederick’s for the present waiting to shell and then storm the city at any moment, but as near as we can understand there has binn (been) an armistice (signaled?) for 30 days to see what action will be taken upon in (Congress?), then there will be peace made or there will be bloody work there after we pray to God it may be peace. May God cast His blessing upon you and the children forever. Write as soon as this comes to and remain your well wishing husband and father .
