Dear Frank,

I am writing you a few lines as I have time. We had your letter a short time ago and was very glad to hear that you are all right. We had the papers you sent after the letter and we had the last papers today. There is a great deal of news in them and a lot of crime. I could not write sooner as we were very busy about the races which came off on the first and second of the month and had a very large gathering of people, the largest for a long time. The weather was so fine that everybody was there. It is one of the finest years that ever came in this country and is so at present. We are all well at present. May is all right after the fit she had and she was very bad for a while. Doctor Crosbie paid two visits to her and then I sent her out to Tullig. She was not there more than two weeks when she came around all right and after four or five weeks you would hardly know her there was such an improvement. She acted like a person that would lose their head and run down to a skeleton. I thought there was no more about her. But she is all right since. All the friends are well. Fanny Parkinson got married to one of the Fitzels last June. You spoke about sending your photo. We would like very much if you would when you are writing again. I wish you would send one of the Episcopal prayer books. A small one will do as I want to compare it with the ones that is here. And be sure you don't forget the little girls coming on Christmas with a present of some kind. Let us know if you see the Nyes or the Baileys or how they are. I suppose you do not go out there lately. The Dillons are back here again after all the coolness they do be inquiring about the friends over all the time. I am sure they do not write very often. Patt Carroll is very glad to have Henry with you over. He tells me that he likes the country very much. Write soon.
