Brother Isaac,
We received a letter from you week before last and we have all neglected to write you sooner. We are all well now and have been sice you left. Moses L is getting better slowly. He has got up to Alex Mcs. Orld Mrs Daniel Miller died last week of typhoid fever. "Betsy" M has been very low with it but I guess she is getting better. Adam Yadas Little John was buried week ago Sunday. Drew Able moved away last week. Lime took both our colts for $185. Scott moved on his farm. Michael Rodrick now lives in Dave Eldbridge house. Father has bought five acres of land from P.E. on the corner. It measured 40 rds long (N&S) and 20 rds wide. He paid $40 down and is to pay the balance next October.
