This is the letter the main char writes to his sweetheart Isabelle from my new novel
"My very dear Isabelle, the indications are very strong we shall move in a few days, perhaps tomorrow. Lest I should not be able to write again, I feel compelled to write a few lines that may fall under your eyes, when I shall be no more. I have no misgivings or lack of confidence in the calls in which I am engaged, and my courage does not halt or falter. How great a debt we owe to those who went before us, through the blood and sufferings of the revolution, and I am willing, perfectly willing to lay down all my joys of this life to pay that debt. But something whispers to me, that I shall return to my loved ones unharmed. If I do not, my dear Isabelle, never forget how much I love you, and when my last breathe escapes me on the battle field it will whisper your name."
