Mrs Throne
We received your kind
and welcome letter, and was glad
to hear from you and all the
family, your brother James was
here and spent the after-noon [afternoon?]
and Evening with us as he heard
John had returned from Ireland
and wanted to hear from all the
family, Mr Sample was very sick
and had to leave the City last
May, his wife and children have
not returned yet but they are
comeing [coming?] in the course of a few days,
he has only been here 2 weeks
He is not looking at all well,
his sons has the business all together
now. I don`t understand
how it is, the boys got it, and I
but from what few words Mr
Sample said I think last May
when Mr Sample was so sick
and thought he was going to
die he signed the business over
to the boys, and I think the
boys have taken advantage of the
their father since his recovery.
He seems very much depressed
in spirits, an [and?] I did not
like to ask two [too?] many questions, he is
coming, with his wife and children
to spend the first Sunday, after
they return home, then I will
find out more of the Particulars
as him and I have all ways [always?] been
the best of friends. he was sorry
to hear of Mr Throne`s accident.
John told him about Mrs McIntyre
getting her ankle sprained, John
told James, that he spent a few
afternoons and evenings with
Mrs Buchanon and had a very nice
time. Mr Sample was very glad
to hear of the prosperity of three
family`s [families?] wishing them all kinds
of success through life

Well now Mrs Throne I
wish you could have heard John
and James, They had little Ireland
in the Parlor, between them they
had all the names that you could
mention in that part of Ireland
and I laughed hearty to hear
the two talking of home.
Your brother James said

day in twenty years.
