a few years. I know one man who upon borrowed Capital started a mill 14 years ago -and is now worth certainly 200 thousand dollars. Still we often feel lonely in this land of strangers - no relative - no old friend - no familiar face - no voice to which we were accustomed - lang syne [times past] But thank God there is a place, where the friends of Jesus will meet to part no more - & Oh my friend may you & I, with our precious ones be there housed at the last, and in that day be found "all at home". Give my love to Rebecca, and say how much pleased I was with her kindly notice of my letter - and that I will write again. Jacqueline and all the children join me in love to you and those that are dear to you - God bless & prosper you in all things. Yours sincerely & truly J. M. Daniel
