Detroit, U.S. Sept. 17, 1863
After receipt of this please not to forward any more letters, I am not sure whether I shall take the packet from New York or Boston, probably the latter Oct. 14, at any rate, the Lord willing, I shall leave in October for Europe. I may land at Queenstown, Cork, but it will only make a difference of a few days. Kind remembrances to all, J.N.D.
