Very dear sister:-
I wish you would write
and tell me about all of our connection which live out there.
You don't write enough to keep me informed as to your health.
We are both well as common at present and I hope you are
all well. All our people here are well as far as I
know except Charlie Brumette- poor boy he won't live long.
He has got consumption.
Well sister I will soon
be 75 and I can't do much work. I am getting feeble.
I would like to see you
very much but don't guess I will ever
see you in this life. But it won't be long to wait for we
will meet where there will
be no parting - where God will wipe away all tears. I want
to know how you are getting along since Silas died. It does
seem that you could come and see me since you are
all alone. I think it would do you good to visit the
our childhood and talk over old times once more. Can't
But then you would not
know a single place that was once so familiar. Things
are so changed for the last few years. They are building
a glass and iron furnace right near the old wash house on
the old Sharp place and then the other places have changed
so much. Big Creek Gap has become a town and changed
its name to LaFollette. You must write a good long
letter to your loving sister.
