as to getting the temporary house erected which you desired, I have not been
able to find any person willing to take hold of the job, and have thought
that perhaps you may meet with some person at
who could take
it in hand.
Business goes on with us in quite a lively
manner and we hope soon to have the acquisition of
and family, with other friends to assist us in
our arduous, but glorious undertaking. Our families are all well and as
far as we have knowledge all things are going on quietly and smoothly.
Yours &c &c
