My Dear Mariam,
 
Having just received
your friendly letter, I think it advisable
to answer you by informing you that prob-
ably we shall not be at Lowell under a fort
night on account of the bad state of the
travelling as we have to go about thirty five
miles before can get to any steam boat landings
we feel very grateful to you for your trouble,
but farther hope that your overseer will
keep that place you speak of, for we are
determined to go. Aurs says, “tell Mariam
that we are wide awake for Lowell”, I would
go tomorrow, if it were not that the roads 
are almost impassable, but we are in
hopes to get there within two weeks 
from this date. We think that we should
like the place in the mill which you speak
of also boarding with you better than any
thing else and hope that they can be kept
open for us.
excuse all errors, for Aurs sits at my albow
making fun.

Yours in haste but friendly

                                 M. Florette Sawtelle
