LETTER
Carthage IL
8 Mar 1887
"Dear Pa
"I did intend to write you sooner but all week I have been busy and Sunday your man Mr Longley was here to see about his seeder and corn teams and to buy plows. I think he will be a good steady tenant for you. Henry says as soon as he gets the little kitchen finished he will write you anything I want him to, and will write you the promises you told me to have him. I didn't tell him you asked me to have him do it, but told him it was his duty to you to do it.
"I wan to (if we can) set out some shade and apple trees this Spring. Please tell me what is best to get. Star has a 'buttel' calf. Nome of the rest are fresh yet. We are living and cooking in the sitting room. Had to use the lumber in the cellar floor and until we get a chimney built in our new kitchen will have to cook up here.
"I earned fifteen dollars last week. Sold 4 models and that has helped out on the feed question. Earl has bought one big load of corn and tomorrow Jim Currents has a sale and I have money enough to buy some hay. I have a new rag carpet- made the rags and paid for shearing myself. We have paid out one dollar and half for work in the year. Jennie and I have done it all. It's foolish to tell you all this but I know Ma used to write you what she had done and I do feel proud of the way I have helped along in the last two years.
Love to all and kiss the children.
Lovingly
Sue"
