Dear Lytle,
Yours of ths 2nd ult [ultimo?] duly
received I was sorry to hear that you had been out
of employment for a week but was glad that you had
obtained another situation and as you say [stay?]
settled for the winter-- Indeed this is the time to
be hunting up a winter's job as it is pretty
difficult to get anything to do in the dead of
winter as everybody who is in any sort of decent
employment tries hard to stick to it.
I am expecting a letter from home every
day as I have not heard from that quarter for a good
while now.
I am doing all in my power to get a few
dollars ahead and will be glad of your help when it
Please excuse this short scribble as I
some horses to feed & it is getting late

Yours Sincerely
John L Hall
