This, as you say, will be quite sufficient to take up the $2000 mortgage.Tell A[nnie] L. that she had better come over here and tame Joanna and me rather than go up into those infernal regions to tame those scalp-lifting devils! I am very glad that she is well. We would like to see her very much if her health will allow of the journey.Hastily,Walter Brown
