Sarah [Muir Galloway]

All of his brothers came except Henry & Charles and we had singing you may be sure, all staied till about 4 in the afternoon and than went off to accompany Maggie to her new home we had more [illegible] there Mrs Reid senior was there, and had supper prepared for the Company The Log house looked as cozy & comfortable as you could imagine and looked just about right with Maggie in the rocking Chair I guess John thought so too he seemed as happy as could be, and thought his good time had come at last David & I came away sooner than the rest as I left the little ones with Mother I asked David the next day how Maggie looked
