Dear Brother
I received your letter and glad to know that you
are all well. I am happy to say that I am a little better but
still verry [very?] weak. the plaster that I had on my lip
took away the bad place but my mouth still keeps verry
[very?] tender. If it pleases god I may recover yet. I am
verry [very?] thin lost a deal of flesh.
I had a letter from Sally I send on to you. Do
not let her know that I Sent it to you. I should like that
you all live in harmony With each other for the short time we
have to Stay in this world. The crops never looked better than
they do this season. They were verry [very?] bad last year
therefore there was great distress in this Country last
season no fuel no food. Thank god a fine Appearance of a good
crop this year. I am verry [very?] glad that you let Brother
Bernards estate go through the Priests hands. They can lay
nothing to your Charge when it is wound up.
I remain your Affectionate Brother
Patrick Sloane
