very Glad to here that your

sorry to say that my
Mother died on the 12

her 78 year Mother never
stood on her Legs for more
than 12 Months before she
Died and a little time

before she died we was
oblige to feed her for she
was quite helpless altogether
and I hope these few lines
will find you and Aunt and
all the family quite well
as it leaves some of us

but we must be very thankful
to think that we are
so well as we are thank

the Doctor attending of one
ever since last Christmas

Clothes on since the 8 of
Last February

rest are pretty well at this time
