to hand that it may find you all well and
what you aught to bee when I say what you
aught to bee is to not bee and rebel nor a
fool the way you haiv bin righting hear you
air one or the other and you cant deniy it nor you
nead not to try to deniy it to mee your side has
not got a foundation that is eney sounder than
a soft bull tird in the sping of the year
you have not I suppose from the way you have
bin riting seen nor heard nothing but disunion
secession confederate con federated and
confederation and you all haive swallode it
down like sweete milk and soft peachis
I say hurrow for lincol it has ben
said that lincol was a going to free
the negroes that is a by I will say that
it seames to mee like congress has something
to say aboute it first. it has bin
said that the union men was traitors

freader of the disunions with their helish
principle principals than I am of lincol
