[Daniel H. Muir ?]
reason for so doing. About two weeks ago father Anna and I went to Portage on saturday and returned on Monday spending a more pleasant sunday than we have for some time We went to church in the morning and after the meeting we staid to the sunday school and enjoyed ourselves very much in the bible less having a very pleasant and interesting teacher. She is Mrs Whitn[illegible] the ministers wife. And again in the evening we attended church. Father has lately commenced a sunday school at Mr Mitchels house, but it is not very interesting as there are but two or three scholars besides their own children and ourselves. I am happy to hear that you are going to write every week, and I am willing to do the same but how to get them to the ofice every week is more than I can tell how[illegible] never -theless not withstanding I will write weekly and send them away afar often as we can, goodbye Your Sister Mary
