Dear sister
 Your letter of Apr 19 received, also the one of Feb 23rd which you supposed
was lost, it did not reach Oxford untill after we left, but our friends there
sent it on to us here, so cheer up sister if our letters do not go back and
forth as quick as we wish they get along sometime.  You say you are sorry
we have to be moving about so much, could you know the benefit it has been
to us, you would say how glad I am, we did not leave there because we did
not like, Mo, we had become attached to the place and people and had it not
been for Smeads sickness we probably should have been there now, but that
put us back by getting us some into debt and he had such a good chance to
see,get clear, and do better, we could not withstand the temptation, buying
and selling is every day
