Intercepted letter from J. L. Smith to his wife Elmira, May 13, 1864

It appears that J. L. was perhaps a Unionist who fled LaGrange, Texas, for the Mexican border, leaving his wife and children behind. He mentions seeing many men that he knows--the handwriting and spelling are so poor that they are hard to pick out.
