son speak of them) lives at the Anderson place-are very nice peo-
ple I like them very much. I was very sorry to hear that Rufie was
in bad health. Hope he may soon be well and when Dr. Wallace
comes home again I am coming to Waco, if not to stay, will visit
my friends. Am going to bring Sue and Estelle to see little Rufie.
Did Phelia have a wedding? I have never heard anything about
her since she was married. Where is her husband? Is she living
with his ma, or hers, or is she keeping house? Tell me something
about her. She will never write, though she promised me she would
be certain to write to me. Where is Mat, is she still staying with
your ma? Does she like Waco? How are Willie and Lee? Write and tell
me all. Write a long letter. I have been waiting all year for the army
to move up towards Shrevesport to go to see Dr. Wallace but am near-
ly out of hopes. I came very near going home with Buck Towns and
Lizzie but I would not have seen him if I had gone, for the army had
all left Mansfield before he reached home. I suppose Mrs. Carter went
to see Mr. Carter. I expect she had a hard time getting there. Dr.
Wallace said in his last she had got there, and so she got there and
found him still living. I know she did not regret it. Mr. Carter was
improving slowly when I last heard. Give my love to your Ma,
Mat and all the family and all enquiring friends. Do answer soon.
How does Mrs. Herring take Capt. Herring's capture? Mother
sends much love to you and family. Kiss for the baby.
