I was thinking it might perhaps look prettier in the picture than the plain dress, but if you think otherwise or have that part already finished some other way, I am not at all particular. Walter had a very pleasant letter from Mr [illegible]ell the other day who reports you all well and very prosperous. We were glad to hear from them. We are having a piazza built on our little house and the carpenter makes out to keep up a very substantial noise but I am about used to it[7]for he has been hammering at the other side of the house for two weeks making a kitchen pantry & little store room, these are separated from the other part of the house by an open hall (roofed over head) which Willis will describe to you, It is true Southern style and a great comfort in warm days, we set our table there to eat and feel very aristocratic, Walter says he will hang a hammock in it for me to laze in when it is very warm. The weather is still [illegible]ably cool and delightful I really do not believe we will need to go North this year
