I know you are looking for the money I promised to send you
our banks and Express companies have been in so much trouble I have
been afraid to send it but I think all will be well soon so I
can send it within a month you may buy what sheep
you want and agree to pay by 1st to 15th May and I will manage to send
you the money. If you can spare Mary to go to school this summer send
her and write me what money will pay her expenses, or if you want
anything get it and send to me for money. do not fail to do so. Harris
is in one of my stores. he does well and I think I shall bring him out.
I have a great deal to do. I have built a new store at my old stand and
have opened another store in which Wm Hale is my partner. business
good. Ann will write a long letter. I am much obliged to Mother for her
many letters. will try and answer part of them. My best love to all.
think of you all every day.
Your afft Son Chittenden

James Morrow started home 10
days ago. I gave him your overcoat and some money. he raised funds to
go home by subscription. He is an object of pity.
