Father is very much engaged just now with a Protracted meeting somewhere between his own Place and Kingston, he says they habe crowded houses and good times I saw you on New Years morning, shook hands with you and wished you a happy New Year, whither you knew of it or not that is another thing, if you did not then I repeat it again I wish you a happy New Year and may you be truly happy in every sense of the word. I saw your long letter and truly it is a long one indeed, and besides I did not know you were half so rich Maggie is about her usual, her little Annie has not been very well for a few days back. Georgie can talk enough now, he is one of the most restless little fellow's you ever saw he does not know the way to sit still five minutes, if you had about half a dozen of them in a school I think they would be about enough to keep you in motion most of the time at least. he knows all his letters that is so much maybe he will learn to sit through time May God bless you and keep you SarahP.S. be sure and write soon I am wearying for a letter from you s 491 00316
