Dear Robert
We are all glad to hear from you and that
you had gone to work in the Old Shop and that
you are feeling better than you had been in
I am glad that you have gone to work again
with Maguire and Sloan you will be more at
home there than in a strange Shop and try to
take care of your money. A drop of whisky
has not come into this house since you left.
I thank you for the weekly Tribune which
has come regularly and also for the other
papers which has given us all the news.
I met Mr Spence last fair day he told me
he had some Insurance Papers which some of
the Bradleys had sent to him to give to you
to sign but as you had already gone away, Mr
Spence returned the Papers. I suppose it is
some of the old papers they had transferred
when they were in difficulties.
I will be writing to Thomas shortly and will
give him your address, so that if he sends it to
you you can sign it for him.
Miss Gilliland desires me to say to you the
Brown duck is still laying and Madge has a lot
of young chickens.
My father keeps as usual. Ned Harkin died
last week.
Mary Ann Buchanan and Margaret are coming for
a few weeks to Milford so we will have the house
full. Miss Gilliland warns me not to forget to
tell you that she has now got a Thrush it don't
sing yet but it can eat worms. Hoping this will
find you in good health.
Your Affectionate Brother
James Buchanan
