He writes to his parents saying he is almost "homesick." ""It has snowed & blowed furiously all day...I. tried to read...thought of all my old sweethearts...our ride ...to Waterloo...then I had to think about Andrew with his soldier clothes on - then of the war - of the rebel daughter that I thought so much of & who is now in a convent in Paris, of my being in the same city within this year, & not being able to see her - & so on, etc. ..." He remarks that he is finishing his work and wonders if he can spend the rest of the winter at his parent's home if they can spare a room. He signs, "A. H. Wyant." Very Good.
