ask me what I think off you learning
to run a machiene. You must be your own
judge of that. You might try it and see how
you could stand it. but what do you do at
the shop now? There is one thing I am sorry for
and that is that Mrs Wim is with you, I have always
surmised all was not right in that quarter. but
never knew for ceartain, untill I come out here,
that her caracter was so bad, There's four or five
of our boys know her, and her caracter is worse than
Mary Greys; get rid of her as soon as posible if you
have any respect for yourself, or me. I should not
write you this if I was not sure of the truth
of it no one knows, in the company that I know
her, and I would not have them know that you
associated with her for on hundred dollars.
tell Clarra I shall write to her soon,
I want to write to Mother to night if posible.
You ask if I get more [wage?] now; I do not, a
corperal pay is the same as a privates $13 a
Sergent $17, a first, or orderly Sergents $20 but I am
in hopes to have a rize before many months
