to edit the religious page. Now I have no doubt you need some religious reading; and then you will have some curiosity to see your old friend in the roll of editor. My niece Bessie Hendricks has two or three short poems, here and there in the papers; and my sister-in-law Mrs. Victor Hendricks wrote the address of thanks to the Editor of the Sentinel, for the grant of the paper. My niece made the drawing of the design for my page. It was considered very good when itcame from her hands, but I do not know how it will look after it has gone through the processes preparatory to getting it into the paper. I am wondering how you are getting on with your literary works, and shall be much interested in the success of your book.Hoping you and yours are well and prosperous, I am, as everYour sincere friendEliza S.
