Family Happenings – 14

26 June 1838 – from Margaret McCulloh

My dear Sis Ann, Niece Ann & Nephew James,

If I had written to each of you as often as I have thought of and intended it you would have been tired of my letters long ago.  If it is not too late I will now thank you for that long good letter you joined in writing me and which I was truly glad to receive.  If you will all come and see us this summer I will promise to make amends for all seeming neglect.  We were much disappointed by not seeing Father and Mother and will still hope to see them here.  We have now a promise of a visit from Uncle Jas & Aunt Abby & Uncle Jacob.  Cousin Ann & baby are quite well & so we all are.  When we get our fortune we will see each other often I hope.  Our love to Mother, Grandpa & all our friends.

Yours as ever, M. [Margaret] Cummins
