Title Dear Ellen, Page 025
Description The Letters as possible. I can imagine how surprised your neighbors were, when they heard it. I am sorry Frances's health is so poor, she used to dance as though her strength would never fail her, perhaps too much." That makes me think of a party I am going to next Friday at the Social Hall - it being the fourth of July - rather too warm weather though, to dance much. I want you to write me a longer letter next time, and tell me what kind of a house you have, what your amusements are, and every thing you can think of. Margaret sends her love, and wishes you "uninterrupted connubial felicity" and I dont know what word Hiram sends this time, for he is gone away, I rather think though, it wont be any thing I would like to finish this page but my children are getting so cross, that I shall be obliged to say farewell, so sweet slumbers, and pleasant dreams to you, to be realized upon waking _ Your old and true mend Ellen C. Clawson P. S. Hiram says he thinks it would not look very well for him to be sending his love to married women E. C. C. Ellen, forgive all my jokes, for you know young married folks must be plagued a little, and give my love to all. E. C. C. Ellen Spencer Clawson to Ellen Fratt McGary ------------ ------- ^ G. S. L. City September 4th 1856 Dear Ellen I fear my letter will not be as lengthv this time as usual, for , O 1 ' eFnmces Pratt was well known, despite her ill health at times, for her "gadding about" ami iliincing at San Bernardino and San Jose. 25
