My dear Mother
Your letter which was
written a week ago last Friday only came
yesterday it has been so cold and there has
been so much Snow here that we have had
no regular Mails here for the last week
past the Rail Road has been all
filled up and they have only just
got it cleared out
I am glad to hear that Party went
off so well. I see by the papers that

intends to go abroad in the
spring I suppose there is nothing in it
though, but if there is pleas remind him that
he has a Son in Auburn that would not
object to going with him.
If you can let me have it I should like
to have some money as I am somewhat in
want of some. I have let Miss Bennett

and then there is two weeks of my other
money coming to me see if you would send
me a check for 40 it would pay me up to

I should like to pay up if you can let
me have it. We are all quite well here
