Dear Lytle
You [Your?] last letter with P.O.O. [postal order?]
enclosed for $12.00 for which I am extremely obliged. Well I
want to tell you the way I am situated, before I got your
letter on Saturday I had a deputation of some of [Re?]nd's
men out at a new mine which has been opened up wanting me to
go out there three evenings in the week & teach a night
school and not knowing when you might be able to render me
any assistance being idle myself I agreed to go out which I
did & now that I have started will have to continue it until
the month at least is finished I have not very many scholars
yet but have the promise of some more next night so when I
was in the business I started one here as well the three
remaining nights & am working up all the pupils I can get &
doing any little job I can get through the day it will give
me a little "lift" and put me in a better position to get to
Chicago which you may depend will be as soon as I can
reasonably get there and hope as you say that we may spend
many a happy day together in Chicago.
Again thanking you for your kindness
Beleive [Believe?] me Dear Lytle
Yours sincerely
John L Hall
