Dear Sister Sarah,

I believe I am indebted to you a letter and will hasten at this time to drop you a few lines also enclosing you a Cheap Photograph of myself and Family as we would naturally appear on our best behavior. By the way why not send me one of yours, my Sister? I would be very glad to see your Photograph amongst the balance of the family. Please send it along. I trust you are getting along all right, your health good and that of your Family. This leavs us all usually well. I have been suffering from a ______ cold but think now will come out all right. This Picture comprins self, wife[1], and baby[2], and Miss Sarah Thornton, Wife’s Sister about to be married I think about January 1st/74 to a young man by the name of Jamesen[3] that is engaged with me in business as you will see from this letterhead. Has been in my Famly for three years. Seems like one of our own Folks. Dear Mother[4] writes to me often and always such good letters. Its remarkable how she keeps up for a woman of her age. Love to all. Embrace Luke[5] for me. Write often.

Your Brother
