Transcript Head Quarters April 18th,/73 My Darling Son Your two favors of March 9th and 16th reached me a few days since, was glad to hear from you, as I had longed to know how you enjoyed your visit to Aus -tin. I regret you did not call on Mr Raymonds family Mrs Walker her sister Mrs Johnson both are sister[s] of Mrs R. I am glad for too you have had some rest from study & business, and that your health has been benefited No doubt you have done well to sell out the Clear Creek interest if you retained our interest in sales alre ady made which will be paid some day and our share will save some of the sacrifice we have had to bear in this unfortunate investment Mr Sydnor told me to retain these interests as as he had done so he had done so in the sale of his inter est. I wrote you on the substance of a conver sation I had with him at the Burg after I saw you last January & beside left a message with Jennie fearing the letter might not reach you in time ------------------------------------------------------ or perhaps not at all. I think as you do the sale to Coning is the thing that could be done glad however you did not sell the 738 acre tract for $250 and too we may keep it an other thirty years & not get more Mr Rund erwood told me that it was a poor low prairie tract of land & but little timber upon it I do not remember whether he said he had seen it himself Well of course you have heard of the little stranger though not from a Grandmothers pen, but I will not venture a description but leave you to judge for yourself. Sallie was getting along finely until today week, had an attack some thing like Bilious Cholic & for several days was quite sick, now however she is rapidly im proving Baby keeps well. I have had a bu sy time and not through yet. At this time my health is quite good, but I am awfully tired when night comes. The “Age” comes to me regularly, beside other papers which are very acceptable I assure you in this dead region of the earth. I have not had time to even write you particularly as I wish to, will have the more to tell you I hope soon. I hear a bright future is predicted for you. My heart bounds with joy when I hear you so highly spoken of. You will never know dear child how high my --------------------------------------------------------------- hopes are for you, now the depth of love pride & anxiety I feel realy I am too impatient too anx ious yet I manage to keep all my feelings pretty much to myself. Years ago when you were young & after your fathers decease my constant anxiety was fear that I might die & leave you to the care of no one knows who, and that you might be neglected and mistrea ted, this was a bitter source of anxiety to me then; and now that you are grown, and I find myself still looking around for some cause of anxiety on your account I check the feeling and try to feel thankful that I was spared to protect & care for you while unable to take care of yourself The more so is this my duty ---------------------------------------------- when my aching heart is made to beat with joy at hearing your praise so universally spoken of all seem to hold you in very high estimation. I am compensated if I can continue to see you advance successfully in your business. we have a good garden milk & butter & Gaston has a crop of ten acres mostly in corn & other “Truck” come to see me when you can all want to see you As ever you loving Mother Mary Jones give much move to Mrs Bryan Mollie Eddie & the little girls Mrs Scranton Ditto. We will have Grapes Peaches & some plums do write me some occ asionally Forgive all errors as I am entertained while writing by Baby fretting
