In this July 16, 1864 follow-up letter to his mother, William Patterson reports that he received a July 8th letter from his mother in which she reported that she was un-well — which he was sorry to hear about. As reported in his July 13 letter, he is still concerned about the $550 he sent her, which was six months of back pay. He also again tells her the address to use when mailing letters to him. If they are sent to the 1st OVI, they will go to the front and then have to be re-directed to him at the hospital. There is one change to note in this letter, he reports that he is doing fine, but probably won’t be able to return to his regiment for some time.
