but since the weather is cold with showers of snow that soon melt We have not got any nearer to either ["Hirte or Market"?] still I walked to church but Sabbath day.David has this week brought a very gentle horse and a new Carriage_ I rode in it yesterday for the fist time. His daughter Annie and I rode up to 'Prospect Hill' and many other places.Mary pained a picture of her baby when she was seven months old and sent it to me, in a very handsome frame. and now it hands in my parlorI am much pleased to think that Emma and the children will be able to make us "Portage folks" a visit this summer.
