Dear Brother

4th I wish you was near Oh would you were here To see you once more Ride up to our door So pleasant would be

2nd 3rd

Togeather we'd walk We're missing your [illegible] Togeather we'd talk So well is your face Togeather we'd sing L.D up with a smile Your [illegible] voice would ring Eating apples the while With musical cheer Those esticans red

4th 5th

Togeather we'd be We'd talk of the past Neath an apple tree Of days which we last Enjoying its fruit Enjoyed with each other So mellow and good Time spent with you Brother With comfort and [ease?] As pleasant indeed, yes pleasant indeed but I am sorry to hear that you are not intending [illegible] to gratify us but have no doubt but you have some good


reason for so doing. About two weeks ago father Anna and I went to Portage on saturday and returned on Monday spending a more pleasant sunday than we have for some time We went to church in the morning and after the meeting we staid to the sunday school and enjoyed ourselves very much in the bible less having a very pleasant and interesting teacher. She is Mrs Whitn[illegible] the ministers wife. And again in the evening we attended church. Father has lately commenced a sunday school at Mr Mitchels house, but it is not very interesting as there are but two or three scholars besides their own children and ourselves. I am happy to hear that you are going to write every week, and I am willing to do the same but how to get them to the ofice every week is more than I can tell how[illegible] never -theless not withstanding I will write weekly and send them away afar often as we can, goodbye Your Sister Mary
