Mr. Walt Whitman Dear Friend

I have once more returned to this place and am improving in health. I should like very much to see you. I am very anxious to hear something of the whereabouts of my Capt I have written several times and as yet have recd no answer. Hoping to see, or hear from you, soon. I remain as ever,

Yours with respect
Aaron Smith
