[---?] [Comber?] people and cousins and [they?]

was pretty pleasant thy [they?] kept, [---?] [the?]

Robert [tomorrow?]. thy [they?] all look very well
and [--?] and [--?] all going to try the
[gilter?] written while thy [they?] think maybe
the will do better in a while. May dear
[---g?] for them not to be [trampled?] [more?]
[then?] thy [they?] are able to resist, but I
believe, thy [they?] will not cheat if thy [they?] cannot
make of it honourbly I [think?] thy [they?]

it is very pleasant to have them at
home a little while. it is a pity thy [they?]
cannot stey [stay?] a longer time for when
they go to see [their?] frinds [friends?] thy [they?]
trust not long to stay with us .

old times. Mr Mc [F?] went to the [----?]
[---y] of [Keady?] and went home with
co [------?] [-----?] and left on Saturday morning
M says he said he thought he could
have a congiagation [congregation?] before he would be [better?]
[the?] and Isaac Vance are both preaching for
the same place. Eliza is looking very [well?]
[------?] of married people were as usual only
little Jonny he has been very sick.
old Milton is right well he was up last
night she does not come often since [Annie?]
left if [near?] on [Sunday?] Evenings. I hope you
