Description The Letters lonely hut perhaps grace will be given you to "grin and bear it ' as the saying is I hope it will be some time, before I shall be called on to experience a similar trial Friday morning gth We have just had quite a severe shock of an earthquake." We are hardly done shaking from the effects of it. What y <T? frightful sensations it gives one to feel the earth shaking under ones feet, not knowing one second what will happen next, expecting every moment to see the houses fall or perhaps the earth open and swallow you up. If you ever saw pale faces you would have seen them this morning, it made me think of a great ship rocking on the sea, it lasted more than a minute, the trees shook as if in a strong wind, the water in the well splashed against the sides, the walls of the houses creaked, and folks staggered as if they were a "little bit tight. ' bat there was not material damage done I believe and I realy do hope such shocks may not be frequent We received a letter from Frances last mail. 1 think I told you in my last that she was married to a man, by name Mr Jones Dyer and lives in the upper country a short distance up the bay from San Francisco. Father has returned from the Islands and is living with her he, Father, married her after he returned, she seems happy and contented is very pleas-antly situated with the exception of being away from Mother, and sisters, has all she wishes to make use of, of this world's goods, but she does not say a word about her health I think however it must be better or she could not fly around so smart as she does up there [csse Earl is up there teaching dancing school, they have very fine times We are all quite well this winter with the exception of Wil- ntly the shock was general.
