Danl Dear I have received your very welcome letter of Aug 5th I am always glad to know how you are getting on. I hope you do not feel as a stranger in [Maine?] now - but are having many good friends and constantly gaining ground in your practice - perhaps you do remember that it is 22 years today since we arrived at our first Wisconsin home. many are the changes that have taken place in that time and many are the blessings - that have been showered down upon us -
I am very thankful to our Heavenly Father for his protecting care of us all and though the family is widely scattered yet we are all spared - by his great mercy - I hope our lengthened days will be spent in his service - Every thing moves on here about the same as usual, your father is still busy in the field [illegible] King corn - Anna intends staying at home this winter - and Joanna intends teaching - she came home from Portage about a week ago, and in ten days will leave home again as far as I know the -
rest of the family are in there usual health - you write that you will not feel settled until you get married - . Well I trust you will be heaven directed in this matter that it may be well with you - Anna wrote to you about six weeks ago, and would be pleased to have an answer. have you ever heard of Dr Cullis of Boston - it is not many months since we first heard of him, he lives a life of faith. the same as Mr Muller of Bristol - Dr Cullis has a home past incurable consumptives that are very poor
and he has a tract repository we have just received a lot of his tracts and small books for distribution, we are much pleased with them. I shall try to send you one of his reports. I intend to send a B. messenger with this May the Lord bless you, and keep you, continually is the sincere wish of your affectionate Mother
---Joanna sends much love to you, but is surprised you never write to her. --
