Dear Wife

Yours of the 18th came to hand last Eve I am glad to hear you were able to ride to reading & that Dr Rogers has not altered his opinion I hope he will prove correct and help you. About the garden I dont know what to do it wont pay to hire it tended Jim cant do anything about it unless he lets it out. do as you please with it if you think of going there soon prehaps it will be well to get something planted.

Times are so dull east that I dont think it best for me to go there untill it is absolutely necessary. I am writing on my lathe and supper is ready 

Yours in Haste

I had a letter from Pease I dont think he has any notion of coming out here he excuses himself by saying it will cost a hundred dollars for tools I supposed he had gumption enough to know that he would want tools if he worked at carpenter work anywhere the best thing he can do is to stay where he is and be easy
