Title Dear Ellen, Page 033
Description The Letters disappointed if I did not, and I wanted to he the first one to tell (he news (for I expect it will be news) and as they have just gone out riding on horse back and I am alone, T feel as though it would do me good to write, for my heart is rather heavy. I never thought I could care again if Hiram got a dozen wives, hut it seems as though my affections return with double force, now that I feel as if I had lost him but I expect he thinks as much of me as ever, onlv in a different way you know a new wife is a new thing, and I know it is impossible for him to feel any different towards her just at present, still it make[s] my heart aehe to think I have not the same love, but i console myself with thinking it will subside into affection, the same as it is with me, for you know the honey-moon cannot always last at least if you donf. know it now you will sometime perhaps I think perhaps Margaret feels worse than T do for she was the last, and 1 suppose thought he would never get another, the same as I did, and "misery loves company" you know. "Well" Hiram is kinder than ever, if possible, to us, and I do know one thing certain, there never was a better husband in this world, and 1 know he means to do right, and 1 want to help him to do so all that lays in my power, I do not want him to think so much more of me, that lie cannot treat the rest as he aught, although it is womans nature to be jealous. But excuse me for dwelling on this subject so long, "Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speakelh" and I forgot myself I happened to be out in the buggy the day before your letter came to hand, and called on Sister Hutchm-son for some books of mine I was in a great hurry and had no time to talk with her, she lives nearby a mile from here, .• and to tell you the truth I am not quite as able to walk as usual, so I dont know when I shall see her again, to try for your likeness,"" but I will "do ray endeavor" when I do see -"Ellen Pratt's picture, for her father. It is nut known whether Inn rufjuuM: was answered or not. 33
