Portage 22d Dec 1880Dear DanlI very gladly received your letter. I am pleased to know that you are all well — and I trust you have not had any cause to regret the change you have made. Perhaps every thing has not turned out exactly as you expected, but I trust all will yet be well with you I think you have had much colder weather than it usually is in Neb – but we have also had very cold weather but as yet very little snow – It must be quite a pleasure for both youand Margt. to be able to visit each other occasionately – I hope her health will also be benefited by the change Your friends around here are all in their usual health David busy time still continues and Annie is still in the store Your father is happier than ever since he got back to Hamilton but writes that he is ashamed to think that he allowed himself to be persuaded to come to Wisconsin I feel sorry to think that we shall have such a very small gathering this year at Christmas – none of the Phillips folk are to be here – Mary – expects to make us a visit in the spring, so Sarah and her family and David and his family are all that will not
