of a strong wind, not a particle of ice was on it.  On Friday I walked over

in one night in Wisconsin.--I am hoping to pay Ann a visit in the spring
if I can find time.  As Preachers think little of taking long journeys in

In conclusion Monday Dec. 14th 1846.  I am now going to close this and send
it off.  I have waited two or three weeks expecting a letter from home and
one from Bary but not one has arrived.
Yesterday as usual I preached twice and had a comfortable day.  My health
continues good.  And still I look to God for grace andstrength, for wisdom
and righteousness.
We have had very little snow, the weather is cold and cloudy.  Let me hear
from you all often as convenient.  Remember me in love to all.
