       I expect you had a time
of it cleaning the parlor. but by
painting it. it will be better
than before. as then you can
clean it without so much
trouble.
           I am glad you have had
my pants and vest colored. as I
shall want them when I get
home. I have been wearing my
light pants nearly all the time
and they are about "played out"
My black ones are perfectly good
yet and I need to take care
of them. as they will often be
in demand. Therefore intend in-
vesting in a suit at Cin--
cinnati. My coat is also "fading
away" but it has been in active
service now for over a year.
Will also get the shirts as you
