My Dear Annie

In responce [response?] to yours of
last night I take up my pen to
write a few lines with pleasure as
I have not answered your other letter
yet but I am so pushed with work
that I have not time to do anything
besides my partner has turned out
to be very disagreeable I think [th---?]
[---?] [---?] [---?] [---?]
buy him out & that before another
week is past we all have a big
rain here now something unusual
for this time of the year but that
is better than the storms they are
having back east. I haven't had a
letter from home in two months.
I don't know what is the matter
with them. I had a paper from my
brother Robt [Robert?] in Liverpool
on the Duke of Clarences death he
never put on his address. I dont
see why he did not let me know where
he was stopping you talk of me not
being able go home now annie I
would be as willing to go home
as you are but I am placed in a
position now were I ever so (sic) willing
that I could not comply with it. I
have too much money Invested now to
rise up & have it in this place
besides it would cost me about $50
per month for Labor [besides?]
supplies so that would diminish
the profits a good deal you want to
know w [sae?] new [---?] [---?]
I must [---?] you it was [Love?]
you want to know whose colours you
shall fly now I dont think it is
necessary for you to ask me that
question just ask yourself whose
colours have you been flying
for the past year or two & that
will solve the question I know
this is leap year but if you want
me right away you must come out
here if you do you wont regret it
I can make a living for you
without you working out....
