Mr. Will Harrison
Canehill, Nov 16 1882
It is with much pleasure that I will try to answer your kind and most welcome letter which I received some time ago. Was very glad to hear from you but sorry to hear that the children had been sick. This leaves all us well and hope that you will all be well when you receive this letter. We are waiting patiently for the time to draw near when we all shall be together once more. Jessie has gone to Texas. He likes to live there very much. Burk said to tell Jessie and John he has a pair of new boots and to tell Willie that he has got a pistol for him and he said to tell him that when he comes he will give it to him. Tell Sallie that Lena Wheeler is married and Kattie is a going to marry too. Lena married a man by the name of Hinds. She went with him 9 times. He just been there a little time. Kate will marry Lee Cannon. I guess Dixie has been very sick since she was married. John Mitchell was married not very long ago, married wife Mary West. The Retherford boys and the Blakemore boys had a fight and Cal R Shot Anda Blakemore and Tom and Anda Cal and Jim Blakemore went to Texas and Tom and Jim came back. Ma said to bring her 18 or 20 pounds of cotton and she would pay you for it. Dixie wanted some too, 7 or 8 pounds.
Are you a coming? I hope you will be here soon. I want you all to hurry and come. We are looking for you every day. Burk said to tell Jessie and John that he is as big as Jessie and he has first reader and fourth reader. James said to tell you all that he wanted to see you all very much. We have plenty of apples and potatos, plenty to eat. Come rite ahead we will be glad to see you at anytime. I haven't anything of interest to write to you. Well there is a saw mill at Uncle Abb now and they have all got the big head so bad that they don't know what to do. We went to see Mary the other day and she is a going to move in a few days.
Dixie was down here today and said that they would get done gatherin corn today. Ma is fixin to cook the stove full of sweet potatos. You ought to be here to help to eat them. Lee wrote to you the other week and we did not get any letter from you and I thought I would gobble up a few lines to you. I have run entirely out of anything to write and I will bring my note to a close. This leaves all well but Ma. She hurt herself the other day very bad lifting a (trap?). I hope you will be here soon. Give my love to Sallie and the children. Receive a (?) yourself. So goodbye.
