Whitman writes a response letter to Lewis K. Brown, a wounded soldier recovering in the hospital Whitman worked at. Whitman writes that he had been very sick, and has had to return to Brooklyn. He is presently recovering at home, and hopes to be well soon. The only news that he has to share with Lewy is that the railroad and telegraph in Baltimore, Washington, and Philadelphia have been cut by the rebel army.
