My dear Daughter.
<p-bgn>If it was not, that
I know thee will be disappointed if thee
does not hear from home at the usual

time, I would not write to day, as
I am very far from feeling well, and
consequently, not much in a writing
humour. but as the house is full of
company, there seems to be no one

but myself that can do so, and as I
have been pretty much confined to
my Chamber for several days, I am
not missed. I have been battling with
<und>quinsey</und>, since last fifth day, but whether

<und>it</und>, or I will be victorious, I cannot

yet say, but as the disease is no worse
to day, I feel in hopes it will be better.
it does not suit me at all to be sick
just now. Mary Knease, and the Pauls,
are still with us, but I think calculate
on leaving tomorrow. Lizie Gibbons, has been here since last fourth day, I d'ont know how much longer she expects to remain, I have heard nothing like her leaving, but I shall be very glad to be left alone once more. I think the LambertVill girls have had a splendid time, they have received a great deal of attention both at home, and when they go out visiting. Charlie Rowland, as usual, is all, attention. and many others. they are really very lovely girls. -- I wrote to thee last first day, and enclosed a letter from Cale, and one from Jane. I hope thee has received them e'er this. I wanted thee to see Doctors letter, he speaks beautifully of Jane, and hers sounds much more like old times. We received a letter from Fannie, a day or two since, but writen so badly, we could hardly make it out. I think Ned is affraid he will not be put on board of a Boat. on leaving tomorrow.

he will not be put on board of a Boat.

I wrote and told her, it was not worth while for her to write, if she did not want us to read her letters, and that we really could not make out near all she said, that she must write slower, and take more paines. -- Aunts Julianna, and Mary. and Carrie, and Han Maule, called after Meeting this morning, and were all well. Carrie called to ask us there to tea next fourth day evening, the first invitation I have ever had, rather unfortunate if I shall not be able to accept it, there is not much prospect of it at present. but I understant the party is to be put off untill I can go. -- Georgie says if thee wants him to come help you moove he will have to come the latter part of this month, as he has to be back by the fifth of next month, on account of his lease being out at the Nordmans, I am affraid he will have a good deal of trouble with that troublesome Man,I wrote and told her, it was not worth

he will have to come the latter part

of his lease being out at the Nordmans,
I am affraid he will have a good deal

of trouble with that troublesome Man,
the store has been rented three times since George left it, but Nordman, w'ont have any thing to do with any of the tenants, he says he looks to George to deliver up the premises in the same order he got them.
     I hope you will all be very careful in moveing not to take cold, wrap up right warm, and have the house thoroughly heated. thee must write and tell us when thee will be ready for George. I must stop now and go bathe my throat, and with love from all, remain thy attached
Mother.
