My Dear Sir. I had arranged to come
to Gloucester this Morning with Mr
Stevenson but my Wife is sick and
I cannot leave her. She has now
been down two days with a very
bad cold & fevers & I fear She
has also had a chill.

We have been looking for you
and your Family here for a long,
long time and have not heard from
you all since your favor advising
me of your intention to visit us
as soon as you could do so.

As I am now busily engaged in
stacking my Fodder which I have
to have at least 6 miles and
when that job is done must
commence my Wheat seeding.
I fear that I shall not have

it in my power to come to Gloucester
very soon. It is now more sickly
here than it has been during
the fall. Temperance and
Odd fellowship is all the go and
otherwise things remain as usual.

With our best love to all
and hoping soon to see you,

I am,
Most truly yrs
S Jones

Octo 4. 1847.
