I feel more like getting well now than I have for a long time, say to mother & the girls that I am getting better, don't till them any more, Your letter of the 20th [Nov?] took twenty days to come As soon as that 75 dollars reaches me I will take the steamer for New Orleans & if the doctors there tell me to go home I suppose I will have to submit I suppose those feaus are the price of my walk & I am willing to pay it, I hope you are all well.
