Other relatives are also suffering from fever and ague. He reports moving into his new house and plans to dig a well, build a smokehouse and springhouse, build a stable and buy Finley's old stove. He talks about the political situation and is quite certain of Ford's election [Seabury Ford, candidate for governor]. Abstract Number - 395
