Sinse [sic] I last wrote to you my health has improved. Our situation is more healthy, in fact our position is all that any prisoner could expect. I should like verry [sic] much to hear from you[.] I[']ve rec[eived] no letter from you sinse long before I was captured. I hope soon to see a small box from you, with some clothing[.] I am verry bad off, don[']t send anything in it but clothing and medacine [sic] as other things are not allowed.
I also desire you to purchase and send to me in my nane [sic] a bill of exchange on England which I presume you can get at any brokers, that I may raise sone [sic] money. [L]et it be for about ten pounds Sterling. Please send it immediately. Give my love to all
