I have no news for I am where I cannot get much all is quiet and peaceable around. I therefore wait with earnest expectation for your advices. I am anxious to know your opinions on any course that I may see proper to take, for in the multitude of council there is safety.
I add no more, but subscribe myself your faithful and most obedient servant friend and brother
