Dear Sister
I have waited
until I could send you
a long letter I am married
The Cermony [Ceremony?] was
performed in San Francisco by a
Justice of the peace I
will in my next letter
send you the proof
not one but the County
Clerk was witness. So
your Sister (sic) name is
Isabella Moore now
with very High Honour
I expect to hear from Willie
very soon and will tell
him to be sure and come
by here I will send all
the aprons and the
nightdresses I do not
know of any thing else
To day is so much like
Summer we have ripe
strawberries in the market
I have had new potatoes
twice There is so many
flowers in bloom this place
looks like a little Eden
The air is fragrant
with the perfume
I am going to Church
to night alone as usual
Write soon and tell me
when you intend to start
If I can get to send some
other things I will.
I will close now with a
long good Bye
Isabella Weir
