I have Haywood Y Mr. Hagen here sick - Sam we left as he has not returned yet we are at a loss to know whether he is very sick or has gone after oysters with Mr. B. Your letter to him is here unopened. I received a letter from D[ ]’s [ ] before learning she will be here to visit us the latter part of this month. I will enclose her letter and let you form an opinion for yourself has Ma set a day for coming home yet. I am getting so anxious to see her. Have not received but one short note since she had sore eyes. D[ ] expects to meet her here and I was afraid she might not get home in time though I wrote her of the [fast?]. Tell Sister how sorry we were to hear of the babe’s sickness and that W[ ] will be up Friday night so she could not get off sooner though very anxious to get home. You never saw such a sea sick crowd as we were going down the bay if you had seen us about six miles the other side of W[ ]y and point so we hung like wilted cab- -bage leaves over the side of the vessel You would have said we any thing but interesting even to poor little Dick [who] was very sick - re[ ] He & I only were sick.. Husband and Mr. Brown laughed at our fish feeding and offered us fat meat; but we were too sick to resent it, and they amused themselves at our expense all the way. Are you never coming. It seems any more if [ ] not please enclose a lock of your hair as a remembrance. I suppose you see Miss Myers occasionally. [ ] sister g[ ] you [ ] expressions with her. But l[ ] by opening told by a second party came down and have it fresh for [ ] [ ] I assure you. Good night Sallie your sis
