Dear Amanda,

                            I dar say you will be surprised
to know that I am in Lowell but I am very homesick
and think I shall not stay very long when I got
to Boston I found business very dull and my sister
Mary, there she wanted me to go to Lowell and here
I am now writing to you on the bank of the Concord
river a beautiful little stream that runs by the house
it is a very pleasant situation but fore all that I am
not contented I want to see you very much with all the rest
of the family. I should like to here from you very much
how the school comes on and all about the folks thare whare
Abner4 is and how he mad out Catching Mackril. I have
been in the mill to work. I do not like it at all and
I expect all of you are glad of it for I might stayt at
home and I wish I had I hope your mothers5
is as good as comon I have often thought of her
since I have left your home. I had a good time in Bost
I stayd thare over fortnight I have no time to write more
I suppose you will get this next spring.

I hope I shall see Albion6 out here but I neednt
for he will not come my to him with all the family

write as soon as you receive this
From your friend Matilda
