Georgetown Sept 4th 1855

Dear Brother

I received a letter
from Henry explictory of a chick
enclosed just two weeks ago. Since
that time I have traveled from
Iowa to this place. I have been
here a week, but expect to go to
Bracker where I left my trunk
last spring. I shall in all prash-
ability leave New York for Cal-
then in the first ship that leaves
in October next, provided sister
Patty comes with me which she
says is a fixed fact. I shall
be there sooner if the should
in any possible manner be pre
vented from going– a circumstance
which I hardly think can occur.
I further think we shall come
by way of Panama, as I think it
is much the safest way. At
the same time I shall have a
eye to cheapness. hoping very
soon to see you I shall say no
more at present.
Your Bro-

D.L. Haun

P.S. my Dear husband &
son I will if life is spared
to us all see you by the last
of oct. I received your letter
on thursday last written in July
asking me to come & stay one
or two years you are doing

to you than for you to quit

die than try to live with out
you longer. I am in fine

stand any thing but to be
seperated longer from you I
know I will be the happiest
mortal on earth if I live to
get there & find you both

you meet us in Marys Vill
for I want you to conduct
me over them mountains to
your ealier how happy we
will be give your self no trouble

your cabin as I would to meet
you in a palace I know I will
enjoy this life. lizzie is
