[conclusion of the letter begun by Hiram Cash of the 5th Maine on August 27]

Nothing of importance has transpired today. I have

not resieved my pay yet but I expect it every day the have

made out the pay roll and we shall in a few days get two months

pay there is some in this regt that say we are coming home t his

month Sept. but I do not think it is so yet and I hope it is not

unless this war comes to an end, we shall probably know how the

case stands in a week or two at the most.
