6 I got here yesterday morning, but I was so sleepy that I simply laid
7down & slept till the evening. Then I went over to dinner at Mr Logans.
8 The Sivewrights were there, & Mr Saur ^Sauer^. He was very very kind to
9me, & I liked him very much more that I ever did before. He says Mrs
wants him to sake me to come & visit them.
12 I am still so sleepy this morning that I can hardly write.
14 Thank you so very very much, for your beautiful kindness to me. I
15don’t know when in my life I have passed such an absolutely happy
18 Love to our little ones.
