comply with, but will not give reasons until I see you, and please don't insist on me saying any thing more than I have, as I would rather not explain further just now. I know this leaves a doubt on your mind, but please endure it for my sake if for nothing more. It would grieve me too much to tell you any thing else.
March 30th, 1879
Mr. J. C. Brewer
Much loved friend,
Again another Sabbath morning finds me employed in trying to form in to words and sentences thoughts which I wish to make known to you in reply to the highly appreciated letter; only a short time ago was received by your friend. I have so much to communicate, I am fearful that my feeble mind will not be able to think of all and write it as it should be.
Last Monday morning found me nearing home from a trip to the Indian Nation in the
company with Willie Brewer, brother Robie and his wife. Yes, the 21st of this month at
twelve o'clock at midnight, we started on
Davis, Emma. [Letter from Emma Davis to John C. Brewer, March 30, 1879]. The Portal to Texas History. http://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth128711/. Accessed April 26, 2015.
