[2]is in Texas as she thinks she will enjoy the visit very much I hope you are relieved of having so much business in hand by selling off some of your land. I am quite sure all of your friends will be much pleased to have you at home for one season While here you told us you would like to see a picture of the home we had when we left Scotland so I wrote to my friend [3]Mr William Combe asking him to get me if possible a Picture of the home we left He very quickly responded to my wish by sending me three Photos. I have decided to send one to you so that all the friends near you may see the old place if they wish I think Margt will recognize several of the houses that are seen in the picture I will also send one of the Photos to Daniel so the friends in that direction will see it
