December the 8th 1849
Mrs & Mr Scarborough
interesting letter was recd. a day or two since, and I feel thankful that I am
well enough to give you an immediate answer. I had began thinking that you never did intend writing again, but am
happy to find that I am not yet forgotten. Oh you must not say that you will bring Malvina to see me no more until I come there. I
would gladly spend all my time with her (except a few hours now and then) but I
cannot get James to go any where with me. I have not been even to preaching but once
since the 6th. You must come
Christmas, we are going to have a big eggnog’, pa has employed a pedlar to bring him 20 dozen eggs, Oh you must you must come. Oh think of a good eggnog,
and be sure you come and if I can get James off I will go back, and stay with
you until you are tired of me. You asked
if I had forgotten Dr H-, no, no never will I forget him, I saw him on
the 6th he is as lovely as ever, and as interesting he told me he
would be here again to day, and it is now half past nine, and he has not yet
come. Oh I wish he was here, I feel
lonely a little, but while writing to you I am contented. I often get tired of books, flowers, wash and
every thing, and if Malvina was only here I should
have somebody to cheer me up, Oh I wish she could live near me. I never expect to mary,
therefore I intend to spend one half of my tine at your house, and the other
half Malvina must spend here; I shall be so happy
Harper and Mr A White were married a few nights
since. There has been several parties
and quiltings in the neighborhood but I was
not invited. Old Mr Green is going to give one, the day before Christmas, I learn from the Mises Williams that I am to be invited. I anticipate a great deal of pleasure, but I
almost fear that they will not ask me; Malvina come
over and I will go any how, I will write a ticket for you, and one for my self
and we can go then and show that we have invitations and I am sure we
will not be treated with coldness. Mr David Busrey has moved back to
Talbot and Mr C Parker now occupies his place. Miss Ann Williams is going to Randolph or Lee
to teach school next year. Malvina can’t you get me a school over there, I must teach
too, as any body can teach now adays. Frances Williams is also going to Randolph
again. Jack Flemming is dead, he ran away from here on account of debts, and was taken with the
cholera in Louisiana and died his wife is out there and is extremely low, she
will not recover perhaps. I think he
fell in company with about 100 others and 50 of them is dead and the other 50
likely to be soon. Do not go to
Arkansas, for fear of being sick, Have you any idea of going, and will you
remain in Ala-. longer? If I was
married, I should be willing to go after the cholera subsided if you and Hardy
would go, but I do not wish to go until I is marry for there is no body there, I love’s And I love all that are out here. Billy [Mc---] keeps store in Columbus. I believe I have written all the news that is interesting to you. I have been sitting here at the window
writing and looking out occasionally for the Dr-. until I am nearly
frozen. Oh he has not come yet. Mr Scarborough pa
has requested me to ask you in this letter, if you stand in need of the money he
is owing you, he says he will thank you very kindly and take it as a great
favor of you if you will let him have it next year, he says he will pay you all
that he can if you are obliged to have it. Write soon.
Think of the Eggnog and come to see us Christmas, perhaps [Sara] will be here, she has not written
in a long time.
Mr and Mrs Burns send their best
respects and wishes to both, and says come over Christmas. May-be-so I will not marry.
Accept the care of your aff- friend
