us all long letters after you feel settled in your new home, let us know what you intend to study and what your prospects are, if you intend to stay long at Madison. I feel anxious to know all about you. We have had a very busy winter. We have had two men most of the time, clearing and fencing, besides David and Danl, and the work is pretty well through, there was a great snow storm last week, and the snow is so deep that the girls cannot get to school, they have a very good teacher this winter, they have singing and prayer and a lesson in the testament every morning a thing very unusual in that school. Your Father attends four prayer meetings every week and they are pretty well attended, generally, your Father and all the rest joins me in love to you. hoping to hear from you soon. I remain your affectionate Mother 00256
