Mound Hill Apr 1st 1872My Dear Uncle John I write to tell you how much I thank you for my nice book It is called the Young Exiles it is a very interesting story about a Russian family who were exiled to Liberia and how they escaped to England. I think a great deal of it. School is out now we had a very pleasant term this winter I got through my arith- metic twice. The superintendent told us that if we would come every day and not whisper he would put our names on the roll of honor and put it in the Wisconsin State Register. We had an exhibition on the evening of the last day; there was a stage put up and we had some funny pieces and very nice singing I would like to receive a few lines from you but I suppose you are so busy that you have not much time to write many letters As George is going to write I must close Your affectionate niece Anna Galloway
