[in margin: of letter to “Dear Daniel” from “your [mother)?]] Dear Brother “Who ir ee comin on, and ire e weel” I am brim full of astonishment at the silence which has followed my visit and begin to think that it must be I did not make a good impresssion. Why does Emma never write to me. I have wait ed and waited for an answer to my letter but it has never come. I trust however that ere long we shall have something more satisfactory than even a letter I wish you could all make us a visit before the Fall has passed away. I return the pat[illegible] which Emma lent me and am much obliged. I would has sent them sooner but feared she was not at home. My love to all.
