Dear Sister
I received yours also
one from home which makes me feel so
sorry I cannot go but it is simply
impossible as soon as Willie leaves
here I shall find a home somewhere
else besides in Cala Fornia [California?] I think
some of going in Washington Territory
it is some like the East I will
let you know never the less so Mr
[Shoultz?] has gone home I am very glad
to hear it you are having [lots?] of
changes but [Gusta?] still stays
I suppose she will remain as long as
she can so you think of going about
the middle of June i [[I?] wish I was going
too but I will sometime I suppose
one more [letter?] will be all I shall recieve
[receive?] from Pontiac from you I dont think
I shall start a correspondense [correspondence?] with
any one except Mrs Kelly give her my
best here she was a good as mother
to me and I cannot forget it I will
certainly send those things with
Willie I have not heard from him
in some time in my home [letter?]
Jennie said Mother was not so well
I answered their letter to day but
said naught about your going home
as you had not yourself perhaps
I am well and hope this will find
you enjoying the same I have heard
nothing from Mr Gladdon so know
nothing of the girls you must have been
busy getting ready as you [gave?] me nearly
everything and now I must close
by asking God in his mercy to bless
you is the earnest prayer of your
sister Bella Weir
