a bushel, potatoes 25 cents, eggs 61/4 cents a dozen __.  There is plenty
of wild game here.  Pigeons by millions, I never saw such a sight, they fairly
darken the ________ at times, there are some deer's.  I have seen one bounding
along.  We have plenty of very nice fish, succors and Pickerel weighing six,
eight and ten lbs, some more.
 Well I must bring my letter to a close for I must write to others also.

 Yours with affection
