Page 42 - Dear Brother — I've got one of the handsomest farms in the State, and have it nearly paid for. Crops are good, prices never were better. We have had a glorious revival of religion in our church, and both our children (the Lord be praised !) are converted. Father got to be rather an incumbrance, and last week I took him to the poor-house. Your affectionate brother.
