My dear Sister,

Sam and Doc arrived home last
night save and sound. They left Sis Etta at Cousin
Harriet Thompson's, who will remain there until Sunday
and some us will meet her at Salem and bring her home.
It may give you some pain to know I have quit
school and Bro Sid has engaged Henry Oldham to
clerk for him, and so you see I am knocked out of busi
ness. But I hope I shall find something to do more
profitable than going to school to [predudiced?] teacher.
I had studied hard as it was in my power to
do this session, and the other morning having a
very hard Greek lesson, failed on it. When Mr.
Bingham wrote to Ma and told her I was doing
no good at school, and it would be a great favour
to him to take me from school, it went very hard
with me to stop after I had begun, and still harder
with my dear, dear Mother. But the Lord knoweth
what is best to do. It makes me feel sad while I think
of it and will drop the subject. Ma is confined to
her bed to-day with the head-ache. Ellen also is in
her bed. Mrs. John Morrow come up to see her this
morning. I took tea at Dr. Long's last night
found all quite well and lively. Bro Sid has
purchased Dr. Long's part in the store, give
my love to Addie, and receive a large portion
for yourself. I suppose, Susan & Sister Etta told you
all the news. Good bye,
Your own Brother
A. S. Webb
