John M Orr Esq
LA [Louisiana?] [Circular postmark 5 Jan 1848?]
My Dear John
I received your letter about the 12th Dec
and would have written you before but was delaying till
I got a letter from home to give you some news but
the only news they gave me is that they & all friends
were well. they are the worst correspondents I ever knew.
I will write you in a week & give you a description of my
sail down the Ohio & Mississippi. I am not doing anything
yet, the bad news how England has put a stop to trade
nearly altogether but I expect before much longer to be
dabbling in something. Our Friend Willy looks well & is
now chief mate of the Huron. He has given you all the
news from home which he got from Eliza Ann. Wishing you
dear John Many happy new years I remain your old friend
Thos. [Thomas?] Warnock
