very interesting letter last week and the
same day I got one from Mary
Merrager. she writes to me very regular
and is the only one of the girls excep-

I wrote to Pa Friday and sent two

and one for Grand Ma. How do

good? and must I have more of
them printed? Darby had four one
for Charley and Maria Merrager

time you see
Mrs Flora Lecer-
que you would
get her to write
Mrs Lears direction
on a piece of pa
per and send it
to me      Mary
