My dear Mother,
It is just a year
since I went into Barnes
Birth: 1824 Death: 1867
, fully inten
–ding at the time to remain there at
least a year or more, I have been (this
morning thinking to my self) and comparing
the past five month which I have
spent in business here, to those which I
were with Barnes, and I must say this
that the balance is greatly in favor of
my present place as far a business is
concerned – but as for every thing else
there is no place like home although
that is a thing which I could hardly
expect. I am still very well
pleased with my boarding place
and the more I see the better I
