Dear Annie I write to let you know
I recieved [received?] your letter and that
dear letter from home. I fell [feel?] better
than I did But I expect it is
the close confinement that has affected
me as well I am half inclined to
to write a letter to [lib?] and tell
her what I think of the whole
Business But I shall be in no
hurray [hurry?] I have written that
letter to [damaged] and it dont
seem as if I felt any tired (sic)
well I told you I liked the
place and I tell you I like it still
and I thank the wise disposer
of all earthly Blessings I am out
of their power I shall try the very
Best I can to please everybody
and do my duty to the Best of
my knowledge Both to those that
are above me and those that are under
me There is no darkness in my eyes
or in my heart either But I mourn
for them that is shut for ever
from mortal eyes dearest Sister
go to Bachelors hall as little as
possible I feel sorry for Maggie
But she has a home and friends
and Why does she stay there you
ask her that you tell her if I was
to Beg my way home I should
not stay there the world is wide
and she can make a living anywhere
I enclose the letter from home
I shall write next week so
You need not be in a hurry
to answer this till you hear
from me give my love to
Alice Jackson and all my
friends and Yours I Weir
[Isabella Weir?]
Your own Sister
