Dear Annie

I had gone to bed when Caleb came from
Birmingham but I called out to him to
ask if he got anything from the office he
said yes he had a Letter from Annie and
I got up quicker than I can tell you as I
could not think of sleeping and your
letter unread and I was thankful that
things were no worse than they are but in
regard to your Sister you may be sure that
that (sic) you can trust her she is not
likely to make any grave mistake in regard
to marriage for if she should marry I feel
assured it will be to somebody worthy of her
She will know what she is doing before she
takes that step I have so much confidence
in her judgement but at the same time I
think she might be a little more
confidential with you and I pray you not
to worry but trust I suppose they had a
very pleasant time at the Society at Mrs
Millers but I could not go we were so
busy we have three hired men and Anna has
been sick so that it comes pretty hard on me
I have [split?] up 68 q-s [quarts?]
of fruit and have lots more to do before
peaches come on and I am so thankful
for strength to do it (as thy day is so shall
thy strength be) but Annie I felt for you
when you saw those four girls that you had
laboured so hard to entertain act so very
ungrateful but you are no better than your
dear Saviour and you know he had only
one out of ten to give him thanks so dont

that sick Lady
must have had
quite a spell of
it but as she is
around again
you will have to
bear with her the
best way you can
fraternally yours

A Jackson
