Transcript March 1870 [in another’s hand] Sunday 27th My Darling Son As Mr Sam Ashe stoped here about noon on his way to Cedar Bayou I embraced the opportun= ity of writing you as I have not done so in some time, Mrs Harrison has at last paid us the promised visit brought with her Mrs Lyne & son a lad of fiften years, they are her cousins from Ky whome she spoke to you of in one of her letters. Mrs L is a very nice pleasent little lady Mrs Harrison looks wretchedly bad and seems sad & complains all the time, says she never expects to re= turn to Texas alive, and has exac= ted a promise of Mrs Lyne her rema= ins back & bury her by the side of George, she was very anxious to see you, and bid me give you her best love and requested that you would continue to write her -------------------------------------------- she looked over what few things she left here taking some of them with her, and never said one word about any thing she felt either one way or the other - There is but little here of any value. I feel greatly reli= eved that the visit is over with, I feel tired out as I had to be in the kitchen nearly all the time, and as scarce off as we are for almost every thing it was a thing to dread I assure you I hope I have gotten entirely rid of that kind of amusment, I feel like I now had my freedom for the rest of time - Well at last we have had a fine rain which was very much needed But the freeze has killed all the fruit, which I am= ply regret, but everything is coming out again; I rode out among the cattle some three weeks ago found all alive but Pink she died ----------------------------------------------- after having a young calf and of course it died. This present week I will put up another large calf & with the two we now have up will give us milk to do our little family until some young calves come in. When Sam planted corn he had to turn Piggy out and about a week or ten days after found her with six little pigs had more but the Buzzards had eat them & had badly maimed some of what they had left alive We did not suspect she would have them so soon or we would have kept her up, she comes up with her little brood to get corn and sometimes slop, on of the pigs is a perfect beauty Little Charles has been With us for over two weeks Sis came up and took him home to= day a pretty well spoiled Boy ---------------------------------------- The Flour you let Sam have is not fit to use & we intend to return it the first time he goes up & by the way he ought to go as we are out of su= gar, coffee & molasses. If any oppor= tunity offers send us some down as Sam may not be able to go up for some time - I want to see you “so bad” come down when you can - All well, with best wishes for you my dear Son As ever you loving Mother Mary Jones. If you have any good shoes for every day wear send me a pair not too heavy as warm weather will soon be here select then wide in the bottoms and soft uppers
