Nov 15th./74

Dear Son

I have tried all this week to find
time to drop you a few lines, Sallies
three children have been sick again, first
Willie just as she was able to be out of bed
all day Charles was taken with a chill was
in the bed a week. And poor little Dick
has frequent attacks, is having one of his
spells now. Elliot has been very well
for the last four weeks, is as fat & rosy
as any Child & full of life & mischief
Sam has finished at Mrs. Ropers. And Mr.
Sydnor has employed him to put up an-
other Gin, in place of the one just burned
it took fire while Ginning on Friday last
from matches in the seed cotton

I as well as
yourself rejoice at the success of the Democratic
Party God Grant every mean thieving Radical
may be put out of power, from Grant down

My heart was filled with regret at poor
Brothers having to lose his place & what
he has already paid on it $1,100 or thereabouts
His wife wrote me that you was trying to save
them something by looking into Brothers
