[2]-many children have died I have spent the winter very pleasantly as I did not keep house at all – Annie wished to spend the winter at Phillips and Sarah wished me to stay with her so I stayed with them twelve weeks and Sarah did all she could to make my visit comfortable – I only got home about a week ago – and Annie has not got home yet – but Annie [illegible]- came with me – she is attending an Institute this week that is being held here – her health has been quite poor all winter but she is feeling much better now, and hopes to teach this summer I think I told you that my house was sold to the city but they told me I might stay there as long as I wished –[3]- of course by paying a rent – so I think that probably I shall remain here during the summer. Is your health quite restored and have you had a good [picture?] during the winter; has any of the children been able to attend school Do you intend to go to farming again this coming summer – I am sure I feel as much – interested in all your plans and would be pleased to have one of you write oftener. I am afraid things have not turned out as your expected – When I came home I felt surprised to see David looking so very thin and poor – he has been more confined than ever this winter, as Parry was elected a member of Asembly at Madison
