Title Dear Ellen, Page 045
Description The Letters he will carry the mail this time and T will get him to call on yon, then you can ask him all the questions you have a mind to Mother's family has dwindled down now to one girl [Ann Louise) which makes it look rather lonely over there to what it used to when there were four of us but it makes an additional place to visit and we improve it accordingly John's sister Harriet lives with them, which will make it less lonely for her while he is away. Ann Louise is the main stay now. Mother say if she gets married and moves off she .sha'nt think of keeping hou.se but there is no signs of it at present Bro Dewey and his wife are living together very happily now; their seperation lasted only a few davs, it was owing in the first place, to living with their relations, more than any variance between themselves, he savs he dont know when he y shall go back to the valley he spent all his means to get away and now he has nothing to get back with You did not write half so many silly things last winter as I think T should have done under the like circumstances, and you must not think I did not sympathize with you because I spoke as I did; for I realv did feel for vou and should not have written in such a style, and "I wont next time," but you may have a chance to retaliate on me sonic day; though I hope not but if you do I expect you would return good for evil and console me all in your power. I am really glad you all get along .so well together. I am most afraid it is more than I should do in the same situation, though it is my earnest desire, and ever has been to do right and to obey the will of my heavenly Father in all things when I can be made to feel that it is his will and know it for myself and not for another, I believe I could endure as much as most anv one. Yes indeed I do wish I could see you and and have a good talk with you. I guess I do. Now you must let this long letter make up for my remissness last mail and be sure and write one to match it and send back by John, please give my love to all who love me 45
