Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

sick & will I suppose go home this week & then I shall be alone again till someone has compassion on me & comes to stay with me. I get {weary?} & lonely sometimes and wonder when will it end. I have been quite ill for two weeks I am better now but not entirely recovered. How rapidly time passes the summer is almost gone. We have established a Sabbath School. I hope it will succeed well & much good results from it. I have an interesting class of little girls. We need something to improve and elevate the minds of both parents & children. Father has gone today to hunt a girl I really wish we could get some one we could trust. I have written letters this morning to J. G. G. & Cousin Jo. I received one last week from Cousin Mary & one from Emma G.
