My Dear Sister

I have not yet discovered
a remedy for Procrastination but have to
regret the loss of valuable time, continuallly

number at the head of this paper, that we
have changed our Residence, the room we
have now is far better than those we left

of is a young married woman and is very
agreeable, her and her husband has gone
to the country for a few days. Now wont you
be surprised to hear, that Mary was in
Saratoga the last we heard from her. She
sewed for a Lady who boarded at the Galt house
who took a great liking to mary. told her she
was going to travel, and asked Mary to go
with her, said she would pay all travelling
expences, and give her $1-50 per week extra
if she would go the Lady has a grad Daughter
goes with them. She has been a citizen of Louisville
for 40 years, and hardly knows how rich she
is, so sais persons that have known her, she is

Episcapalian. They indend visiting Niagra
falls, New york city, Long Branch, Point comfort
Mary saw Sis miller in Cincinnati
