Dear Father, Mother Brothers
It is with great pleasure
that I write you a few lines to let you know that I am well. Hoping that
these few lines will go safe to hand and find you well. I received one
letter by......appleton and am now proud to hear that you are all well.
I received the things you cent me - one pair of gloves and one pair of
socks and one neck comforter. I want you to send me 2 pr of socks for Porter
and Higgins. They are from Arkansas and can't get nothing from home. Take
my money and buy the socks or wool and send them to me and the price and
......buy yourselves out of my money please send this by first sender.
I want you to tell me in the next letters what that is that sister is again
to git married to.
All is quiet in from of

quilt and one plate of butter and some sweet bread. Tell all the girls
how I love them but I have found one in Miss that takes my time.
