Transcript[first part of letter is missing]

if I get it we will go to see
all our friends if I thought
it was not left to me I
would not want it, but if
it was I think I have the
right to it and if I ever
get it I will remember you
for it and any information
you could give me would be
thankfully received, Dear Cousin
do not think me troublesome
as I am very much interested in
this and I would like to know
about it as soon as possible
my little girl is growing nicely
and is a very nice child
and hope and trust that
she will be a comfort to
my husband and myself both
as we wear on to the evening
of our lives, she is a dear little
girl I am sure I read your
letters over a dozen of times
but I must draw my letter to
a close hoping to hear from
you soon My husband joins
with me in sending our most
United love to you all
from your loving Cousin

I forgot to tell you the
kind of a winter we
have here the snow is
about two and a half feet
deep but still it is a pleasant
winter and is healthier than
if we had no snow and
more business doing, I think
this is all this time but dont
forget to write soon
your cousin
