Dear sister as you wished me to write you a letter. I have now seated myself to try to say a few words to you but I hardly know what to say for I am thinking all the time about our Isaac leaving as I have tried not to think about it but I can not help feeling bad for we will all miss him so much He wishes me to tell you what I would think of my aunt libby well I guess that I think more of her now than I did the first time that I seen her. She is very kind to all the folks and as for her step children they seem to respect her more than then did their own Mother now. Cynthia I will tell you something that I think looks pretty hard

Take a short break with our 1 minute survey, simple questions that are an enjoyable distraction.

We was all invited to a party to David Rowlands at Christmas day that is the young people So Martha Everitt made her stepmother go along with her to the party she said she thought Mother couldnt be so lonesome I suppose she did not think that dear Aunt Mary would be lonesome and Cynthia when Marthas own mother was living but was to weak and feeble and not able to do anything they could all go to Fredricks and stay as long as they pleased. They did not think then that Mother would be lonesome now I think that seems somewhat hard but what I have said is even so now you must not think hard of me for talking so plain to you for you wished me to tell you something.
