Sunday evening
My dear Son,
Your letter came
yesterday – it is always
pleasant to see the
writing of my children
x Birth: 1844-12-09  Death: 1866-10-29  Birth: 1830-07-08  Death: 1915-04-25  Birth: 1826-10-01  Death: 1876-09-11 

it makes them seem nearer
and gives me some assurn
assurance of their welfare –
Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
will tell you
more than I can write –
Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
left no overcoat
at home except that
old one which you
wore to the fire – I
thought you had one
better with you but

if you need another
I wish you to have
it – You certainly
require more than your
shawl – I wish
you or Fred would
write me a line
how Aunty gets along –
I hope she may have
fine weather like
this day –
God bless you
Mother –
