Sour Lake
July 14th./81

Dear Son

You must excuse my writing
with a pencil as I am nervious [sic]
today. I am going through an other
course of medicine which makes
me feel weak. These waters take out
of ones system all malaria & bile
after I get through this course will
feel perfectly well. You would
surprised to see how far I can
walk every day without feeling any
fatigue – I mean when I am
not taking waters to act on my
liver – My kidneys were power-
fully acted upon the first few
days after I came here. Now
they are acting natural – and
my poore [sic] weak stomach [sic]
I believe will go home well
