3 asleep, grabbed him by the foot & ran across the dock towards the seat of trouble, dragging the nigger along behind. He claims that this is the only way to get a nigger awakened quickly, but that this particular one was still half asleep after being dragged across the dock. He is full of the devil & there is always something going on when he is around. Am about due for two letters from you & am eagerly watching for them. THe last I've had from you was written Oct. 6th nearly a month ago.
