Transcript Crystal Sept 26th My Dear Crommy I have heard of your return through Sam. My heart leaped for joy to know you had returned safely after so long a trip. I am thankful too that it was in every way pleasant. I am certain you have been benefited in many ways, and that it will ever be a pleasant era to recur to. I long to see you as I know you will have much of interest to com- municate. Sallie & I are still reading the New York Tribune (which I suppose you sent me) which we find very in- teresting one can almost can imagine they have been to the Centennial, at any rate all who did not visit it will never know how much they have missed I have no doubt you are quite busy, and if it was not so difficult to get to and from this be[ ]ghted thicket I would go down to see you ---------------------------------------------------------- But just at this time I am feeling quite unwell have an attack of sore throat coming on will take medicine tonight, which always relieves me in three or four days. I am still feeling some inconvenience for the severe hurt I received some four weeks since which I wrote you about directed to New York . Sam was out here three weeks ago doing some work on Gastons press. I do not think he is doing much from all I can learn He would have worked at the Factory indeed did work there a short time but they do not pay any one he said consequently quit. Mr. Grove is here just out from Willis and says Sam wants the place Shep has been in treaty for where Mr. Hampton lives which is just above Mr Wiggins. I wrote to him & asked him to come out here & put me up a room when here doing Gas work he did not allude to it. He is now doing some work for Charlie Jordan on the Bar room, I suppose to pay his board there While you were gone Mrs. Ashe wrote to me urg- ing me to make her a visit & to be there when you returned. I could not go then as I was & --------------------------------------------------------------------- am still hoping to go our to see my Sisters when I do go down, so as to kill two birds with one stone Gaston is determined to get our of here for several reasons, one of which is he does not get sufficient to do here for his Gin & Mill to justify staying . His family may remain here until spring, indeed he has not as yet any decided upon a plan of operations, is now ginning a few bales of cotton. We have all had good health up to this time, which is something to be thankful for. His Gs Cheatham cotton is doing well. his corn gathered & his horses all fat The Stotts family have all moved to Willis, Old Lynchburg & on the Bay seems to be on the down hill grade; I am afraid we will not be able to sell our interest there for some time. Gaston has sent to Houston for a Condenser & when it comes to Willis he will go in for it & I have thought some of going in with him & so on down to Houston provided I am well Will in that case leave Elliot with Sis, but dislike to [ ] her with the care of him as her health is not good tho the cool Northers are bracing her up some ----------------------------------------------------------------- Mr. Long of Houston spent two days with us recently we found him quite agreeable, he professed to be a great admirer of yours &c &c With kind regards to our friends in Houston and much love for yourself from Your Mother Mary Jones Sallie says "why you don't come up" and tell us all about your trip Sam kept me posted in your movments during your absence
