Dear Mrs Carr. I am just creeping about getting plants & strength after my lever I wrote you a long time ago but [illegible] the letter hoping to be able soon to tell where you might write You r letter arrived in Ganesville just a few minutes before I did. Somehow your letters always arrive when most needed I f[illegible] & enjoyed what you said of souls & [illegible]tudes, also that of "all of Nature being yet found in man" I shall long for a letter from you
Will you please write me a long letter perhaps it will be safer to send it to New Orleans, La' I shall have to go their for a boat to S [illegible] I do not yet know which [point?] S. AM I had better go to what do you say. My means being limited I cannot [stay long?] anywhere. I would gladly do anything I could for Mr Warren but I fear my time will be too short to effect much I did not see Miss Brooks because I found she was 130 miles from Savannah I passed the [Bostwich?] plantation & could not [conveniently?] go back. I am very sorry about the mistake
[in margin: I have written little but you will excuse me I am [wearried?] My most cordiall love to all.]
