I only hope they will let me stay long enough her to enjoy it or rather to get the good out of it. Silas was up here for a night with his wife. They stayed with her cousin. He called to see me in the evening and at my office the next morning. Planck Weir on his way south about a week ago also called to see us. We are living very quietly and shall so continue until we get rich. Emma joins me in [?]

love your affectionate son Tho Lincoln
