One could hardly ask for a greater enjoyment, on New Years day, than a warm fire, and there did not seem to be much pleasure away from it, your friends here are well, and you have some very good ones, We do not have very good meetings, this winter, And our school I am afraid will not amount so much, The children like her very much as an associate, (their teacher I mean) Mr. & Mrs. [Teoffer?] wish to be remembered to you with much respect, & Mr & Mrs Hays also, The girls have obtained your drawing, and I am sorry that it is so much soiled, I hope it will reach you safely. We shall always be glad to hear from you, whenever you can spare time to write. Give my respects to your Mother, and friends, and believe us, ever sanly shine, R. SquirePS We shall want to know whether you get your drawing. Please write and let us know, We shall send it with the letter
