kind to us, and are here today, Joanna sat up over an hour today and will perhaps try it again in the evening. Jay will not be well enough so that I dare take [him?] to Portage before I must go South. Our mill machinery will be on the ground the last of the month and we have lots of work to do before it arrives. Joanna asked me to get some two or three more copies of the papers having those verses in if you can cut out the notice and verses and send them to us we will be greatly obliged to you. Write soon dear Anna, Our love to you, Also to Mother,

Walter & J. Brown
