My dear son
Mrs Martin
Birth: 1818-12-25 Death: 1899-07-09Certainty: Probable

asks of you the favor
to forward the
enclosed letter –
Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
had only
a slight chill
with very little
fever or perspiration
last night – This
is positive improvement
No 3 — I have felt
so much relieved
that I have been over
the garden to day

with Jenny
Birth: 1839-11-18 Death: 1913-11-09
who has
all nicely prepared
for winter which
is near us – The
trees and shrubs,
excepting the privet,
have lost their
leaves – the green
grass still peeps up
between the coverings
of manure which
are sprinkled over
it – rain – but no
snow yet.
Tell Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
the box
came safely –
Is Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
at home?
I see so many accounts

of Paymasters going to the
Army that I have
supposed him among
them –
Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
is better
though her cough
continues to be
very troublesome.
Love to Anna
God bless you
Mother
