e As no one but myself ever writes
from here, I will occasionally let you
know that some of us still live. And
probably it will not interest many of
your readers to know who is visiting
in this neigborhood, so I will write
- on another subject.
Well, have been imitating the lives
of my grandfathers. I killed a goat,
a sheep, a hog, and one of my ntigih
, bore seut me a quarter of fine b6ef,
and I ordered three gallons of Bour
a ban, and have been having my "nog"
, three times a day and oftener, and
r- in the meantime I got tired of meat
I and ordered fish, oysters, etc. So
it my "nog" gave out, and I awakened
it from my Rip Vanwinkle sleep, and
g my hands told me they bad every
w crib fall of corn and not near done
le gathering, and when I went to sleep
% I only had 16 hogs, and when I
d awoke I had 26; also more goats and
>r pnore oattle, and the boys bld been
I. taking in new money.
y - So I commenced asking myself
a questions. I thought I ought to be
s the competent one, as I had my
t brain washed 'up, rested and nour
r johed, so I answered the questions in
I rotation sati..factory to myself- I had
i better stop before 'I answer unsatis
