I do not know but I will, so soon as some disposition can be made of this place. Sam still wants it, but as yet is not ready to take it, & of course I cannot leave until he is. I am only Staying here to take care of a home for us all, and in the mean time having some wood cut to pay off Mr Bell with There has been some old [wisecracking] with Wm Birch to keep me from getting him and as yet I do not know whether he will come here or not, will most likely hear today. He was here last Sunday & told me that he would certainly come by the last of the week, I shall expect him sometime today, if he comes at all ---------------------------------------------------- I spoke to Bonner about my Goliad Tax matter, he said that man Lane had never paid $19;95cts taxes, that it could not be at most more than six dollars, and that it was on my list & that if I paid it to him by the first of December it would be all right - But yesterday I received an other form Lane urging me to remit the amount without delay and at his risk first registering the letter and taking a receipt for the same which receipt I would have to send him as proof my having registered a letter with a certain amount or money it &c &c I will not however send it even if I have it to send until I can get the advise of some one upon the subject - And as I have noone here to whom I can apply for advise I will send the letters to you, and I wish you to show them to some one upon whose ad- vice I can rely & let me have a reply and the letters back the first safe opportunity - I am so sorry your health continues poor.
