Hickory hill Sept. 18th 1866

Dear Daniel

I received your letter informing us of your moving a little nearer home why did you stop short of Hickory Hill. nearly every day we think of you when we go to that room to pick out good apples we would all enjoy them better if you were here. I am glad to know your health is good. I hope you like your new situation let us know if your wages are sufficient to support you comfortably - Affairs here move long much in the same old tract our farm is let again to one of the men

that had it last year the other man has bought that eighty [next?] Mr Thomson for twelve hundred dollars the one half to be paid this month, the other half next fall so our farm is becoming gradually less.

I expect you know Margt has got home and is enjoying pretty good health, Jessie went home about a week ago we miss her very much she staid with us five months

I must now bid you goodbye - praying that the Lord will bless you and keep you and direct you at all times.

from your ever affectionate Mother

write soon.
