Dear Sir
I received your letter
and was glad to hear you were all
well, There is nothing particular
going on here at present but dull
times and no money to be had. I do
not expect to have my business arranged
so as to be able to return much before
Feby [February?]. I am at private Lodgings
and I dont like it much. The
weather is pleasant not cold
enough for a thick overcoat. I
was at Mobile last week and
I stood on Deck without any overcoat
so you may judge the night was
not very cold. Christmas passed
off very dull rained all day and
part of the night. I passed the
evening by going to the [French?]
Opera. I hope New Years will
be a little pleasanter - I have
not yet made up my mind
about going into business here but
will do so before I return - I
had a letter from Father some time
ago. They were all well except
mother, who was not quite so well
as before Maryanne returned -
Give my respects to George &
Jane and Beck
Yours truly
A McFeeters
