Dear Cousin Ellen
I have been
thinking of writing to
you this long time,
as I promised to write
& let you know how
I liked this country &
every thing [everything?], I am here
a year now & like it
very well, I did not
like it at all when
I first come here
but I am got used to
it & like it a great
deal better, it is very
hot here in summer
I have been in the
country all summer, but I
am going back again to
Philadelphia in a week
or two as I would rather
live in the city, I had
some thoughts of going
home again this fall
but I am not going after
all Tillie is out in
California now with James
she went last May after
her husbands death, I
miss her very much, I would
have gone out along with
her, only it takes so much
money for a passage out
there, that we had not
enough to take us
I suppose you have
Willie at school this
summer, he must be
getting quite a big boy now.
Dear Ellen I was very
sorry to hear of your brothers
death at that time, you
will have got somewhat
over it now, but I am sure
you miss him very much
Let me know how your

Mother is, & if she still
lives in Cullion.
I hear that Susan Riley
has come out here to
Boston I wonder if
she likes it, I have not
got her address or I would
write to her
Dear Ellen I hope you
will write soon & let me
know how you are all
getting along, I often
think of you, I expect
you be still down
in Loughnease [Loughneas?] sometimes
Remember me to
"up street" folks.
I send my love
to Cousin William
& to little Willie and
yourself Hoping to hear
news from you soon.
I Remain
Your affectionate
Cousin Lizzie Moore
