Transcript Gonzales County Near Moulton Sept 13th 1882 My Dear Son Yours of the 3rd Inst, has been received also one from Sallie of the 11th and a short note from Sam; I have been quite unwell all last week, had a severe attack of toothache which lasted several days. Tell Sam I thought of him very often - Sunday last Miranda took me to Moulton to a Doct. to have it extracted but by the time we got there the tooth had ceased to ache and the Doct. was not at home; So I came back with my tooth . It is still giving me trouble tho not aching much. Tell Sam all the folks here seem anxious to have him come out to see them. And if he can come next week I will go home with him This is a buisy [sic] time with people here gathering their Crops. Cotton pickers are asking a dollar pr. hundred. And at that price not much is made on raising cotton ---------------------------------------------------- as with us it has rained too much for cotton My back is now better, tho at times it is sore and somewhat painful And I do not feel strong although I have a good appetite which should give me strength - But strange to say it does not - I sometimes fear that I never will feel strong any more tho the delight- -ful clear cool weather is improving me I often think of you all in that mesquite [sic] Town and wonder how my little lonely home is getting along - I would like to have you get two papers of Raddish [sic] seed and have Kate plant it on the ground next to the Wilson fence West she could cut down the Oakra [sic] there to make room for it. And I wish her to cut the oakra [sic] down on the east side along the end of the Irish pota- toe [sic] patch as the stalks will shade it too much and there is enough without it I would have written to some of you the last of last week but had no paper & the bad weather prevented our getting any - I was then at Mirandas Now I am at Elizas --------------------------------------------------------------- I suppose Joe Nations has been in Houston er’e this Well it is a little strange that Doct Pope should come to Houston - I wish I could feel the confidence in his benefiting you that you seem to feel in him Sister Eliza was taking last night with fever, and all day today has been in bed is taking medicine with the hope of warding off a severe attack Elliot keeps pretty well, has had headache sometimes from going in the hot sun too much and eating green Oct. peaches no- doubt - People are generally healthy every- -where out here - I see no reason why they can be otherwise as it is so healthy looking, dry and rolling, summery beautiful - Tell Sam to let me know whether he can come out next week - With kindest love to all Sallies family Yourself & Sam - Also rem ember me to Kate & Willie her boy Affectionately Your Mother Mary Jones --------------------------------------------------------- Sallie mentioned that Doct. Jordan had his place advertised for sale. Suppose they cannot stand their jealous dictatorial neighbor any longer Yours of the 9th Just received will write Sallie & Sam soon
