Dear Sister Laurella
            I thought I must
write a line or two to you and let you
know how we are prospering these times
I suppose you have seen Selina since
she was here. We are getting along,
about as usual the baby is better
than she was when I was here

I was expecting Peters folks here
at the Cattle Show this year but I
see by - the papers that it is the same
days as at (Framingham). I suppose
he will hardly want to leave then
but I should like to see them then
or any other time, they must come this fall
any how, and Marcellus too if he
can.  We talk a little of
going to N.H. about the 20 of next
month if we can but I do not know
how it will be
22   I was in hopes to have had
this off my hands this, but I cannot
do but one thing at a time, I made

some mince pies yesterday but I do
not much but attend to Alice these
days   I have no news to tell you
Oh I must tell about a society we
have here it is called the "Pacific
Mills Relief Society" every one that works
on that corporation are (oblidge) obliged to pay
a few cents a week as much as they
are a mind to and then if they are
sick they draw pay accordingly and
can have the attendance (of a certain
number of physicians) one that they
choose, Charles by the way was one
of the number, he carried in his
bill every month, and last month
it amounted to about (80) dollars
I thought it was doing pretty well, but
I presume it will not be as much
another time monday, I am afraid
the Fair will be over before you get
this if I am not spry. Where
is Augusta and where is she going to
stay this winter. I would like
to have you come and make us a
good long visit some time I have

not said much about it before
because I thought it almost im-
possible but a little later from now
I think there will be less to do
I thought perhaps you would
come home with us when we went
up at Thanksgiving if all were
well. I would like to see the
children it seems a long while since
I were at home I expect they have all
grown a great deal. I suppose Lucilla
is better acquainted with her cousins
than she used to be

I believe you told me Augusta
was expecting to work for [Glenia]
this summer but I had not heard
a word about her lately and thus
I inquire. I meant to have asked
Selina but she was here so short
a time I could hardly think of any
thing I wanted too, please write
often and not wait for me If we
should go to N.H. I will endeaver
to write to Marcellus on our return
I almost dread to go with (sis) she

is so fussy, I want to make her
a hood this week if I can I have
cut one out, she had a present of
one from our Irish girl the other
day, and a pair of stockings, but
those will be large enough for her
when she is a year old if she should
live as long. I believe there was
a baptism yesterday at the baptist
I did not go, but saw them as they
passed by on their way to the water
Charles has not been to meeting as
much this summer as I have, you
cannot think how much sunday busi
he has I do not know what else to [     ]
it but certainly he has one or two 5 dollar job
almost every sunday taking the night before
and the one after perhaps; yester
day he only charged about 20 dollars for
his days work, but he would like that
day to himself, and then he could enjoy
going to meeting, but not much rest
for him. I am very well with the exception
of a little of the neuralgia in my face
which is not so pleasant sometimes. I have
not done much for it I am in hopes
it will go away of itself.
           Yours etc. Marcella1
