ocation, in a few days I want
to humbug vally staid one

th Fork Feather river one kt
there & the next day home, at
all events the election came
off first week in spt & I was
beaten as I expected by Dr.
Cate over 200 votes, about the
close of Sept I went down to

Marys ville to see if I could
borrow some money but I ma
de verry little exertion to get it.
I done this for the purpose of
getting some relief & out of the
way of dunning creditors. H.P.

of bad health & his son allso
they all came up the close of
the first week in oct. staid all
