[2]I think I shall be quite able for my long journey, as soon as it is cool enough for comfortable traveling.I am told, however, that you fully intend visiting us all here as soon as you can make arrangements.Now could it not be so planned that I could have the venefit of your company either coming or going? Perhaps if I come early, I could return with you to Wisconsin; or, had better wait for your coming and return with you.I would like your opinion in the matter.[3]Joanna says she is afraid that my appearance will impress you no more favorably than did Marrie & Sarah's as I am about as their looking as they _ but for that matter I am afraid. rom all ac- counts, that, ever we all stood up in a row, we would be rather a shad,- [owy?] looking family. None of us can boast too much [avorvadopois?].John Reid, who by the way is not in the least shadowy looking, made us a very pleasant visit, here, last week. He is cheery and hearty as ever.
