Friend Nell


Elmira Oct 8th 163 (ed: I am assuming this is 1863)

Friend Nell
If it does not reign nor snow tomorrow (?) Briester folks intend to leave my humble roof joy go with them(?) If you Father can spare you to come tomorrow as we talked I would like very much to have you as soon as they get their things out we can go tow ork

Your friend
Mrs. H.H. Holmes

Ed: DON'T FREAK OUT! I am pretty sure that this H.H. Holmes is not this H.H. Holmes.

Found in "Life Among The Savages" by Shirley Jackson, published by Farrar, Straus and Young, 1953.
