I trust she will be able to get a thorough knowledge of the be[illegible]ches she has so set her mind upon and that she will [receive?] as much profit from them as she expects. She has some obstacles to surmount but I trust will come out brightly in the end. I have had no letter from Annie yet but expect to hear from her soon. I presume you have heard about the terrible outages that have been perpetrated in Portage just think of it Dan - all of this to have happened so near us. Joanna is boarding at Bradley's.

[H.?] Muir such poor mortals as I may be able to come to you with confidence trusting that with your profound knowledge you will be able to give us something that will [illegible] to our comfort.
