Miss Annie Weir

dear Annie I received
your kind and welcome
letter and was glad
to hear from you and
to know that you
was well as this
leaves me in good health
I have not heard
from down there
since I heard from
you last
i suppose by this time
you will think i have
forgot to write you
we dont get our mail
very often it is so
far out to town
I suppose you have
not been down to
Birmingham since
last fall
I hope you had
a good time Christmas
it was a dull
Christmas here
it rained here
all day the day
before Christmas
it is snowing here
now hard
we have not had
much cold weather
here yet we are
about 20 miles from
town time is very
long here to me
I hope that this will
be the last winter
i will be in hell
in the woods
but i am getting tired
of it
That [Cousins?] of
your uncle Robert
has not come off
it takes them a long
time settle it
there is not much
news in here and
I would thank you
very much if you
would send up the
Belfast weekely [weekly?] news
to me if it would
not be too much
trouble to you
I [will?] close
as the time [asks?]
you to give my
best repects to
[---ce--s?] [damaged]
[&?] remain
yours truly
William Bell
