I have been thinking of writing to thee for several days bit something always happened. One time I cut my hand, another time I had no paper, and another time lost my slate. I hope you are all well. Cousin Eliza Downing was here last sixth day she told us you were at their house. Cousin Jesse Kersey spoke in meeting yesterday. Henry and myself are hearty.
At Dear mothers request I have tryed to rhyme And so at it I am now spending my time How fare's sister Caroline's sad hooping cough.
