My dear brother John,-It is long since I wrote to you, and longer since we received a letter from you. Quite often I hear of you from Sarah, and once in a long while Margaret mentions you in a letter. What would I do without sisters. Without them I would no doubt write oftener to you - and that is what I ought to do - but you see I am a "no good" correspondent04420
