Dear Brother,

I do not know whether you received my last letter or not. My object in writing to you is to say be careful as to how you send the money as letters have lately been found in the fence corner between here and Bremers. John Addams says he was at the office when Stewart Hilgard stepped in and asked for the mail. Gardner said 'No you can't have it. I was told not to let you carry the mail to Crofs anymore. I have strange & wonderful news to tell you, one week ago tonight there was a spelling school at i got some pussy. Don't tell my wife. two little girls I mean, about 8 o'clock they came home, and then went on up stairs to bed, the girls slept in the same room with their father, they did not make a light. Jennie the older one got in bed, Hallie was get on the floor, she spoke to Jennie that she could not hear their father's breath. She went over to his bed, he was not on this pillow, he had rolled over against the wall...--> NAH PUSSY!!
