My Dear Parents Sister & Brs.

I have at length taken my pen to commence the performance of a long neglected duty. I wrote you last fall respecting shawls for Mother and Isabella wishing you if you could obtain them from NYork (sic) by your Merchants to write us and we send by Mr. Gould and have them in readiness for you, we feltit would be a privilege to contribute a smile in this way for your benefit is their (sic) none of our friends that talk of coming east soon, we have looked for and expected a letter for a long time and I have put off writing myself till it has troubled me much there is constantly something on hand that takes up my time, yet I know this is not a sufficient excuse __I have not written a line to anyone since I wrote you, we have not written or receive (sic) anything from John since he left us last Spring except hearly from him by way of S, and E and it is a good while since we heard from them. I intend to write to them all soon. How do you all get along. Your situation has weighed upon my spirits very much since the burning of your house how do you get along are you comfortable and happy - Worldly property is not the highway to holiness it has been my prayer that the Lord would teach you by this afflictive event high and important lessons in divine things and effectively wean you all from everything that savors of a worldly spirit & how little we need, and how short the time that we shall need that little. All my observation teaches me that it is vain and wicked thing for Parents to give themselves up to accumulate and horde up property for their children Uncle James rant has made a will that does not satisfy the most of his family Adam ha hot an undue proportion Margaret and Duncan have sued for wages. D has had to clear out Aunt Betsy is badly treated and no doubt friendship and harmony are banished forever John Henry is teaching in that district this Winter John Ks wife is very low with consumption will not probably live but a shourt time the rest of our friends are well as far as I know Daniel Grant here in the mill, Eliza Jones came down three week since and staid (sic) a fortnight She was getting her health fixed Margar
