00324 Portage City Apr 11/63Brother Jonathan I suppose by this time I ought to put A. M. or LL D to your appellation but as I don't know which it is I hope you will pardon the omission for this once. I hope you are well and enjoying your self as usual. For my part I am still enjoying good health, but have no notion of giving up the idea of "marriage to go to school" I am surprised that a gentleman of your enlightenment civilization and wisdom, should lack that grace of education courtesy, and hint that I have not finished my education Shame on such an insult!!!? The folks around home are all well as usual Father has bought another horse team, and he with other two men and John are poping into the springs work all the ardor and speed of Father's
