of us intended to write but I
thought Dora had written and
we have been in the country
all the time thought of course
she would write but when
I came in last night she said
she had not wrote a line so
I will try and do so and tell
you all the news, Every thing
is going on smoothly around the
house. but our family has some
what diminished since you left
when we started for the country
we tunneled the cats all in to a
sack and got rid of them so you
see there is 4 borders gone and
when we were a way so you see we
had quite an easy time of it the
comencement passed off verry nice
indeed but was a verry slim affair

the time up to Thursday only lost one
day and got trid of it then had
no company at home will tell you
