Anne [Annie L. Muir]
 Dear Brother I have been on the farm and spent two weeks there. I go to the forth ward now and my Teachers name is Mrs [Cornwall?] We have to go to school seven weeks more and then we will have a vacation and [I is glad to see you soon?]
[Spr. 1862] 
Dear Brother John [time since I deleted] it is a long time since I wrote to you last but I rather think it is a great deal longer since you have written to me. We are all as well as usual and I hope you are the same . We have had an exhibition it was pretty good [xx deleted] we did not a single failure . I hardly know how to
answer your question but I suppose our heads were made so that they would not ache when we are on the under side of the globe if that is not the reason please tell me when you write next. The trees are busy geting on their new clothes I suppose Madison will be very beautiful now I would like very much to come
and see it now. I suppose you know that we have moved up the other end of the town so if you come at the end of the term (which I hope you will not fail to do) you will know not to go up their. Now John be sure to write to me soon from your sister Anne
excuse my mistakes and do not send this back
