                                                     Dear Mother
                                                                                  Enclosed please find Mess Tallant & Wildes Draft at sight on New York, for Fifty Dolls as promised in my last. if you have any use for more money please advise me as you Know I am always happy to supply any of your wants in my power. None of us received a Letter from home by last mail. Since writing you have been up and spent 3 or 4 days at Pacheco found all well except Guy. he had several rather mild Fits probably caused by some derangement of his system and may be too free use of Fruit They think a course of medicine will relieve him. do not feel uneasy about him as he is running about at play. I do not apprehend any very serious results. The Boys are very busy and our new Town looks very prosperous Ann is quite healthy, and in very good spirits. I am going to Placerville next week expect to be gone about 10 days. have not been there since last March. There are very few people returning from Frazer River now they no doubt have very good mines. Our Election has just passed as yet we have not full returns but of course the State has gone Democratic. This City Still keep up the peoples Ticket (Vigilance Committee) which is entirely Successful. must put you of with a Short Letter this time as I write so often. My Love to all and hope to hear from you often
                                                           As ever Yours
