Title Dear Ellen, Page 044
Description Dear Ellen was nut to one hut two nights before my confinement. I played and sang accompanied by the other girls, there were some there who had been rebaptized who declined dancing myself among the number, after my babe was horn I felt so well that I stepped around a little too much and came near having a relapse which you know would have been rather severe under the circumstances but by being a little more careful T escaped Little Miss Emma Francelle is the pet of the whole household being all the little one there is in the family I fuel well paid for all my trouble The last letters I received from William he writes me that he is doiug so well up there, that he has a mind to stay there a year, and wants very badlv that i should come and stay there too. he has the offer of fifty acres of land near by where Frances lives and he thinks 1 could enjov mvself very well for a year, if not J could come back whenever I got homesick. The Spaniard for whom he is at work now has six hundred acres of grain to pat in, he has plenty of hands to do the work but he says if William will stav and oversee it that when it is all put in he may mark off fifty acres for himself anywhere he chooses and says also if he will bring his "mohare" up there he will build him a house; and William aud Frances have picked out a building spot in a beautiful site thev say, with a distant view of the bay. I have not yet concluded to go; but if [I] do you must not think we have any notions of turning away from the faith it would only be for the purpose of making a fit out to go to the valley with and you would only see us the sooner My last letter recorded a birth, now this one must record a marriage My sister Lols to Mr John Hunt, son of Capt li Hunt, son of JeJTerson Hunt and Celia Mounts, bom in JtJwuri.1:, County, Illinois, March 9, 1833. He married Ellen's sister Lois llArm\s Pratt, July 4, 1857, San Bemardino. They had eight children. Tn(: "Jotin HunL Bonk" (.n.p., n.d., mimeograph), in author's possession.
