I am much pleased to know that David is getting along so well in his new kind of work but by this time he will be well acquainted with it, his Daughter Anne is now married and I suppose is comfortable
We had a letter from Mary a fortnight ago, her home is in Kearney Neb her family are all well, but Willis has not been very well for some time Nearly all of the children attend school
