Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

Thursday morning Jan 11th 1858.

It has been a long time since I have written here. I have got quite out of the way of writing 'tis a hardship to even write a letter any more. I really do not have time for writing my household duties claim my almost undivided attention. I have no girl now but Mrs Layton assists me she is a dear kind woman. I like her very much. Daniel has taken a school about 14 miles from here I hope he will succeed well. The other boys are at home. I have written a letter this morning to cousin Jo. She is married and is now Mrs. Thomas Montague. Dear Cousin May you be happy.
