Date: unknown
Creator: unknown
Description: The author's health has returned. He mentions how fair the girls are, the members of church and how they hate each other. Brother Will was blaming Sister Sober because he didn't like her. On the flip side, he says that he has been there for a month, and he ate some bad wheat and then he got a fever. Afterwards he got better because his landlord took care of him. But he owes the doctor eight dollars. The author mentions hunting for deer to make new clothes: pants, a vest, and a coat. And with these clothes he will be able to handle any cold weather in Texas. He then goes to Paris and wants to meet up with Henry Moore and John. On the other side he mentions that he has gained weight and looks like a bear. His friend Browning's brother got a fever.
