I was sorry to hear you had moved for Mary was building her hopes upon going down to you

Joseph Culver Letter, March 14, 1864, Page 1March 14th Dear Brother

Harry has told you almost everything of importance I was sorry to hear you had moved for Mary was building her hopes upon going down to you again I will write to her this week if possible for I doubt not she is dispirited I wish she would come and spend the summer here Harry has 14 weeks to teach yet in this session if nothing prevents we hope then to spend our vacation at his fathers & relativesĀ I was prevented from going last summer I hope our boy will live & keep well for they all seem so anxious to see him Wes is complaining considerable he fears he is swelling again, Poor fellow! he does not do much at practicing, I wonder how they do keep along as they do. He had bought a horse & buggy & a cow and rented a house & lot for $150 for next year I pity him. Mrs Magary lives next door to us she often talks of the time you boarded there The girls are all married but Mag she is an old maid. Mr. Bowman (our preacher) will board there He has a wife but no children, was he in your class? Good Bye write when you can

In much love your sister
Jennie
