Dear Friend
It is Sunday, and I have stolen away

to my room to comune with you, for a while before
going to Sunday school Sister Fannie is in spending
the day with us she is liveing away out of town

hats keep to much noise to think of attempting
writing near them. It is a very pretty day quite
a large baptizing at three this evening which
I shall attend and look for you and me too
as you use to attend them, about half of
the coledge and Mr Farmans Girls as renal
ever spring, I donot rember whether I told you
of John Roaches death in my last or not
he killed himself with whiskey. I attended
Gabbie’s infare, never had more fun in
all my life, had the prettiest set table I
have see for a long time, such as Mrs F__ in
her exquisite task alone knows how to set loaded
with all rare delicaces, and abundance of musick Gabbie
looked as sweet as a peach. Billie as though
over cloud has a silve lineing He told me
that he thought he had acompleshed wonders
in getting Minnie. Barnie & Jennie are also
united in the holy bonds of Wedlock. I was
invited to attend. but it being in the
morning at 3 I could not get up to attend
