been, now don't imagine that

because I am married I will

not care to hear from you.

I wd be as glad to hear

from you now as ever &

will most certainly hope and

expect letters as formerly.  I

know of no family outside

of my connections that has always

possessed my entire admiration

& best wishes & will ever be

very glad to hear of its welfare.

The mats you sent have been

very greatly admired by every

one, we are using them now

& every one who comes in to

tea has some thing to say

about them.  Our crops have

suffered very greatly from

draught this year, & I don't

think we can possibly make

more than a half crop.
