Dear Sister I received your letter all right and has been
waiting still thinking that I might have a little more to
send you but find I am not able so I thought that it was
better to write and tell you so than wait any longer dear
sister times is very dull in this Country I am doing nothing
almost alway [always?] thinking the [they?] will soon be
better I sometimes think that if I had the money I would go
Back Home again but I suppose that will more than I can [ever?]
do in fact I would have been as well if I had never left it
but those is things People cannot belive [believe?] till the
[they?] find them out for themselves thank God I have helth
[health?] which is a great blessing abouve [above?] eviry
[every?] thing in this wourld [world?]
dear Sister I never hear from either John or James the [they?]
may be dead and I do not know any thing of it I will say no
more at Present hoping that things may soon take a turn for
the better and if so I will not forget you your affectionate
Sister A.B. McMillan
