Dear Son Willie:

These papers and card were put into my hands this morning, addressed to you. I have read them. I see nothing that I need to say. In regard to camp meeting at Northcott, I cannot see that I can take any responsibility. Those who are on the ground must decide these questions. They are acquainted with the situation, and I have naught to say. I can pray the Lord to direct and that is all. 10LtMs, Lt 151, 1895, par. 1

Stove has come. Is set up in good condition. Nothing broke. The work goes forward slowly. The behindhand movements of hands at the mill is hindering some. Colson is at the temporary stable. Fannie is settled in her tent. Nothing particular now to write that is new. If we had a plow we could use it to good advantage, but I leave Caldwell with all such business matters. I am not going to perplex you with my orders at all if I can help it. I direct him to you. I am feeling some better than I have felt. 10LtMs, Lt 151, 1895, par. 2

I have not accepted either of the cows I went to see. If I had my white cow here it would be sufficient, but we can wait a little I think, until she comes. If you have any suggestions to make, please do so. I have felt very much to regret my writing to you any wants or needs. You should not be compelled to give any thought to these things. 10LtMs, Lt 151, 1895, par. 3

Be assured that my rambling letters shall not cause you any perplexity again. 10LtMs, Lt 151, 1895, par. 4

Mother.

When do you think you will break up in Granville? 10LtMs, Lt 151, 1895, par. 5
