Dear Sister

I write once [to?]
Bid you a fond adieu with good
Speed on your journey wishing you a fair
weather voyage [I?] [am?] [really?]
truly Glad you are going But ten weeks
does not Seem long Now Anna when at
home or on your voyage or otherwise
please so not let thoughts of me for one
moment mar your happiness as My boy now
able to work for me once More through
the Merciful Blessing of providence
I fear no want & Besides my Brotherinlaw
which is only a young man has promised to
help him until he is quite well I know
my Husband asked him as he said he did
much more than that for them when he
was in the East he has two sisters in
Illinois one of them I never heard from
But the other is Seemingly a very nice
Girl and Sent me some very nice letters
now Anna you ought not to have sent me
Stamps as My Means are quite sufficient
to keep up my small Correspondence if I
told you what my trouble had Been I did
not mean you to suppose I was in destitute
Circumstances now [past?] thank God I am
far from sick....
