Arethnsa, and (God willing) Calyp- so - a journey of a hundred miles by jail wagon and on foot, for just two of our fathers children! Dear John how [rich?] you must be by this time! I only write a word now. So uncertain is it if any word will reach you. But I want to know when you are coming back, and if you should touch home soil at New York. I want you to come & see me in Vermont where I am going to spend the summer - I shall be in Castleton Rutland Co. after the 4th of July - until October, probably and I want to see you very very much - My old father & brother know you, and will make you welcome - Dr Carr has left the University. We shall keep our Madison home for the pres- ent and where ever our tent is pitched it will be easy to hang up a curtain for you - All send love and I am always your friend, Jeanne C. Carr.[in margin: [illegible]] 00443
