Dear Audley
I was not a little surprised when I
received your letter as I had given up all
expectation of our (sic) from you - however I
must have the discretion to allow that there
are a great many to write to before it comes
my [turn?]. I am glad to find that you are
so content and also that you have some of
your old neighbours to spend your leisure
hours with I dont [don't?] see why you
refused walking with Miss Robison [Robinson?]
she chould [should?] pass very well
I think. I hope you said nothing about her
& I since you went there. I am very lonely
since you left I have not got a boy at all.
Mr Mc is visiting Miss [Freeborn?] occasionally
John and Robert are still the rock the sure
foundation neither of them spent a Sunday
since you left in our place so I think the
summer likely will bring disapointments
[disappointments?]. Why do you ask me about
Edward [McClay?] I am too far from him to
hear much of his doings. did you write to him
yet. I suppose Robert has reached you long
since how is he getting along how are you
doing among the ladies if you were here now
I would question you on some subjects but I
suppose there is no use to be scolding accoss
[across?] the ocean you gave me to know by
your letter that you just merely wrote to me
because I asked you. I suppose if I hadn't I
would have got none. I had a letter from
Mary Graham I suppose she told (sic) she
wrote to me. I guess you have learned to take
the [col--ers?] [------?] you will be a
[--adway?] I will when you return As I was bold
enough to ask you to write to me I at the same
time asked something else perhaps you would send
it [torn] to oblige I hope you will excuse this
bad writing as I am in a hurry for the post.
We are all much pleased here on account of the
grand display we are to have on Saturday the
[orange?] men are to march in all directions but
I suppose the [they?] will miss some of the fine
chaps they had last year. I must stop for the
present hoping this will find you well. I am
your sincere friend Lizzie, Good bye
