Natick, Mass August 7th, 1868

My dear Mrs. Dixon, 
Your letter was received last evening and I informed my husband of your wishes in request to Colonel Jones. And he desired me to write you he would send to the War Department and see what would be done in Colonel Jones's case as it would affect him much pleasure to serve the Colone in urgency and also yourself and Senator Dixon for whom he holds in the highest personal regard. Although I never had a daughter I can easily sympathize with you in your anxiety and your daughter’s happiness and shall be most happy if I can aid you in securing hers.

My health as you are aware is never good and this summer I have been suffering more than usual from the effects of a cough which is unnerving with me very much. I've tried numerous remedies but have received no relief thus far. Next week I intend to go to Winchester in the western part of the state to spend a few weeks with Dr Russell, our old family physician who has helped me before and I trust will be able to do so again. with kind regards to yourself, family and hoping you may enjoy your time abroad.

I am yours sincerely,
H. M. Wilson
