Miss Anna Weir

My Dear Friend
I received
your kind letter the
other day was glad
to hear from the asylum
though it is not very long
since I was there, time
goes so fast does not seem
as if I had been home
nearly two weeks
I see there have been a
good many
changes, when are you
going on your vacation?
this is splendid weather
I manage to fill up my
time pretty well, though
I have few acquaintances
outside of our family
there is lots to go to and
I rest a good deal and
read and visit I made and
canned a lot of mince meat
and bake sometimes
It is too bad Dr [Burr?] is
sick I suppose Miss Barnes
has come back
The railroad runs right by
our house makes it pleasant
We have about as far to
go to church as we have
from the asylum
I suppose they are having
splendid meetings in
I was afraid there
would be an eruption
on H.N.L. before long
expect my time will
come some day when
I do something stupid
I did not think our
pictures would be poor
I feel quite anxious
to see them
It took me all the week
to make up in my
sleep after I got here
I never get up till breakfast
is ready Oh dear you
have to sleep these nice
days it seems a pity
if you were here we would
go down town I do not
go very often just for
the pleasure of it it is
so far. We went to church
twice on Sunday there
are some very nice churches
We heard a splendid sermon
at the Presbyterian church
in the evening. We started
for the Methodist but were
late so did not go as it was
farther Well I think it is
time for me to quit this
scribbling Write soon
Goodby [Goodbye?] Mary
