Snow Shoe, First dayMy dear AnnaI have waited till Chelly had finished her letter so as not to repeat what she said & now find there is not much left to say. But I anticipated there was not much time for writing at Altoona when little [?] might have been [?] away by my accident as Hazen shared my room & will not get [?] fixed & go to bed till the Doctor was through with me & by the time Hazen was fixed it was well on to 11 o’clock. It was very providential that there was a Doctor within reach as the piece of bone I swallowed was caught at the very bottom of my throat & no efforts I made to swallow it or cough it up were effectual & my throat was getting so irritated with it
