Dear Joseph
Yours of Yesterday was received this
morning - We are sorry there has been so much
sickness of late in the family - we truly
sympathise with you and trust that the All wise
will give you strength to bear up under the
infliction He has though first place for under
We wrote Father last week and would
have written you but we have been so busy moving
and business has been so brisk that we have had
scarcely any time to devote in writing to any of
our relatives.
Andrew started yesterday on a small
journey to Canada - I expect him home again in the
course of Eight to ten days - I start for Nova
Scotia on or about the 7th of March and expect to
see you in Philadelphia about 24th of same Month
We hope that Janes sickness will not
prove so serious as indicated in your letters -
truly your Friend
