Transcript Friday Augst 13th/69 My Dear Son As Gaston is speaking Of going to the Burg tomorrow I embrace the opportunity of sending you a few lines - I have looked all week for you. Yet without much hope of seeing you, as I well know how difficult it must be for you to be absent, from your post The Peaches will soon be gone, the intense warm weather together with the frequent showers causes them to ripen than they wou- ld if we had clear dry weather and if you do not get off soon you will miss getting any from our own trees, And by the way we have had some very nice ones Sallie and the Babies came up Last Saturday & spent three days with us, Charlie enjoyed gathering up the Peaches almost as much as eating them. Gus was getting ------------------------------------------ some for his Mother one evening and after he left, Charlie came to me and said, “Gan Ma, Pappa [c___] you t chees and take you Peacy” I have put it in his own lingo as near as possible; Yesterday Mr. Bell was attacked with fever, in good earnest, he had been feeling badly for thre or four days, prev= iously, I am giving him medcine and hope to have him up in a few days. You seemed anxious for me to secure him I have already done so, When he returned after a weeks absence, he told me that he would stay with me and attend to everything, until time to begin prepar- ing for a crop and that I could pay him just when I felt able to do so, We have not made any definite arrangement yet as to how we will farm nor can we will I until I can see further what or how we can arrange to live, and to get one good plow horse, or mule, he thinks with one to work with “Jake” he could get along quite well We will see after awhile The McCue layout is gone at last, they left last Sunday, Mrs Elum went with them, all in our wagon, I never felt more relieved that I did to see the start as Ed had became too unbearable for any one, he seemed to exult at the idea of not having any more cows to milk, but I think he will not find it so fine to have neither milk or butter to eat, tho he may enjoy lou[n]ging arou =nd more than he would the milk & butter - Our sweet potatoes look fine we have had several messes already and I have a fine late Pea patch in the garden which will keep the weeds and grass out - We have fall cabbage planted & up but no Turnip ground prepared yet, I will have that attended to as a soon as Bell gets well enough to work, he seems attached to us, and takes as much interest in everything as if he was a member of the family - William Burch wants to come back to me, he has been trying to get Bell interested in his behalf. he said to Bell that he missed ------------------------------------------------ it when he left here, and that he would do anything that was to do on the place and that I could pay him in land, as he wanted to get a small piece to improve when he was able - he has not said one word to me, but comes here every Sunday and hangs around as if he did not know what to do with himself, and I suppose he rather dreads to speak to me upon the subject as my prediction when he left last fall has come true alrea= dy. As I well knew it would, therefore was not so much surprised last Sunday evening when Bell informed me of his wish to come back The question with me is what could I do with him I do not know whether Bell could keep him straight, or whether he would undertake to do so, But as he does not want to leave Tabb yet until near Christmas, there will be time sufficient to see what is best to do, from experience I am satisfied the fewer one can get along with the better for several reasons There many things I would say but have not time As ever your Loving Mother M Jones
