The presumption with me is but few of my letters reach you, particularly as I have not recieved [sic] a single communication from home.
Confinement does not suit my constitution[.] My health has been bad ever sinse [sic] my capture[,] though I think rather improving and in all probability will continue to[,] as the weather will soon commence to get cooler.
In one or two of my letters I have written for money. Please send me a Bill of Exchange with England for about ten pounds Sterling and send by express to the care of Major Anderson, Aid D. C. to Gen Foster. In your letters say but little[,] as they must be examined[,] which will ensure their safe delivery, they should also be unsealed[.]
With love to all I remain your affectionate son
Col Pennock Huey Prisoner of war Charleston Vie Hilton Head South Carolina
P.S. Please send me a suit of cloth[e]s with change of under cloth[e]s boxed up and directed as the money and[?] letters[.]
For Jacob Huey Esq Hamorton Penn
