I duly received your letter prolonging my furlough to the 31st ultimo, for which I offer my thanks.

As soon as my health would permit after this date, I set out for your head quarters, but have been detained here in consequence of a relapse into the Ague & Fever.

I shall proceed to New York so soon as my strength will permit—in the mean time I am Sir, very Respectfully, your obedt. hum: Servant—

John G. Coffin S.M.
