Mt Carmel Wednesday April 29th My dear Husband It seems as if I had always something to hinder when I want to write to you; We have had lots of calls this evening & it is all most 9 o clock & I have just found time to set me down to have a little chat with you. I am rather blue tonight, but perhaps it is only because I am very tired, I have had a deal to see to, to day. Uncle Jar[e]d has been ploughing, & I had a man engaged to come & help, & he got to work for Orrin & wouldn't come, then I went down & got old Mr Bills, & he & Uncle Jar[e]d, have got out the manure & ploughed the piece in the back lot, Mr Butler has been here to work in the garden, & I have tried to help him all I could, he told me when I wrote to you to remember him kindly to you, & tell you that we will try & fix up the garden in good shape, & he wished you were here to help, I thought perhaps I would get a letter from you to night
