I received your & Fannys

letters the first of the weeke. I am
glad to hear that the Horses arrived
safely and hope they may prove
good ones. We are having fine
Sleighing now and there is a good
prospect of having it all Winter.
I want to change my Cutter with
Carpenter

and get a better one
the one we have now is not worth
much and the Fills are too short
for Fanny

much rather stay here. Please
