Self & William / Soldiers & greate trouble / distress / Betsy Paton / Cake

A clear & frosty morning quite calm looks like being fair
weather. I did not rest well after yesterday's excitement &
William is unwell bad cold and complains of his back a good deal.
No one with us, we have it all our own way as much as we can
but it is a bad chance. We have had greate trouble again through
the last week with the soldiers around us. If there was any
place that we could go to to get clear of our greate troubles &
misfortunes I would agree to go any where to live in any
kind of government that would stop our troubles & the impo-
sitions that are every day heaped upon us. O for a Change
Some way I feel like agreeing to any thing to stop the War.
Betsy Payton came & eat dinner & went on to Wm Dew Jur. She
tells of considerable distress & trouble in Masouri. William
baked a pound cake. So Wm. says, but I have not got to see it yet
