[Click on letter to enlarge]


she cannot meet me there if
I do conclude to go that way For
twould be much more pleasant for
me to have company.
     I like my cloak better than
ever think it is lovely. It cost me
$28.00 to have it fixed but twill
last me there or four winters
     I begin to want my heavy
underclothes as I feel the cold
very sensibly. but will wait till
I come home to get them as they
cost so much. and it seems as
though I am spending so much
money but I expect that I could get
them cheaper here than there.
     Mrs. Ira Talbutt starts home
today to Jackson Miss She has
been here over a year writing
