Title Dear Ellen, Page 040
Description Dear Ellen know why your Father and Mother live separate. Pardon my inquisitivcuess, but you wrote that your father lived with Frances, and I have heard so many reports. I know you thought a great deal of your Father Catharine hurries me, so "good bye" Yours Ellen C Clawson Ellen Tratt McGanj to Ellen Spencer Clnwson San Bernardino Sunday Apr i2th-57 Dear Ellen The mail started this time two days earlier than usual, consequently I suppose you will not receive the answer to your letter till the company arrives; but you must not think this end of the line of correspondence is freezing over, not so, we have the warmest drycst weather you ever saw, if we dout have rain before long I am afraid we shall be a dry set. My little Emma'11 is five weeks old tonight, she has been a very good girl today, she staid at home with grandmother, and let her "mar" go to meeting; you may well believe I find it handy to have a mother so near. I do not know what I should do were I not so blessed, for you know I never had the name of being much too smart to take care of number one, but they say the lame and the la/.y are always provided for, and I have always found it so thus far. Father has come home, he arrived here on the ist inst looks as fleshy and hearty (or more so) as ever I saw him; we expected Frances with him but as he came on a schooner she concluded to stop and come on the steamer following but has not yet arrived, we shall look fore her by the next one. I should have been more explicit when I wrote about Father's 3IEmrna Franeelle, born March 8, 1857; died November 7, 1859. 40
