November 3rd, 1869
I was happy to receive your kind and welcome letter on the 30th of
October and I were glad to hear that you were well, as it leaves us all at
present, except Mary,1 and she is
been in the hospital the second time and is at home and is a little better
now, and I hope she will continue so. And I think I will write to my
Brother2 and see whither the letter
will reach them or no.
And the crops are looking pretty well considern how the ground is been
And Butter, D9 to D10 per lbs. Eggs, D7 to D8 per dozen.
Dear Father, if you please to send me my age, for I would like to know
it very much and I have no more to say at present, so I must conclude with
all our kindness. Love to you.
So I remain your affectionate Son
