Your letter was welcomed both by friends and foes, we were glad enough to hear that you was well, and
our enemies think they have almost found
you, by seeing where the letters were mailed. We are all well as usual except is not quite as well as common.
Our family is small and yet I have a great deal of business to see to, Brother Tenny
has not moved yet, and he does not know when he will, we have taken possession of all the room we could get.
I have got all the money that I have had any chance to,
and as many goods as I could well, I have not got much at , no money at all, there
is so many a watching that place that there is no prospect of my getting any
thing of consequence there.
Brother Knights will tell
you better about the business than I can write, as there is but a moment for me to improve. I cannot tell you my feelings when I
found I could not see you before you left, yet I expect you can realize
them, the children feel
very anxious about you because they dont know where you have gone; I verily feel that if I had no more confidence in God than
some I could name, I should be in a sad case indeed but I still believe that if we humble ourselves, and are <as> faithful
as we can be we shall be delivered from every snare that may
be laid for our feet, and our lives and property will be saved and we redeemed from all unreasonable
My time is
out, I pray that God will keep you in purity and safety till we all meet
