Granville Ohio My Dear Mother I have had
no Letter from you now for some time but John and Mary have been
writing to Harris and myself so I will excuse you but whenever you can
always write I like to see your marks on paper. I Received a letter
from Uncle Saml and Aunt Delia a few days ago accompanied by a
Photograph of their house, which I value very highly. I assure you have
had it framed and it occupies a conspicuous place in my office If an
opportunity offers have one taken of our House and send me. Harris has
been spending a few days at Trumans (recruiting) and from a Letter from
him this morning I learn that he will return to day to Pacheco so he
must be entirely recovered Received a Letter from Ann a day
or two ago.
Parker and the Baby had both been sick but were better. I just read
Marys letter to Harris dated October 12th
and shall send it to him to day I wrote Mary a few days ago enclosing
her a $10 – Treasury Note for a Christmas and herewith find
one for yourself. Please acknowledge Receipt of them as I wish to know
whether you get such things We are having beautiful weather. cannot
help thinking how much superior to that you have now. We have a real
Indian Summer weather only warmer I think than you have in October The
war question I never discuss as my views would be behind time with you.
McClellans removal not popular here. (particularly with me). I fear
trouble with the radicals in the North when the Democrats carry the
next Presidential Election (which they will do) but I do hope the War
may be closed with the Rebels before that. My best Love to all. Harris
reports Trumans folks all well.
