Dear Brother,—According to your request, I take the pleasure of letting you know that my wife was brought to bed Friday evening with a girl, and is finely, thank God. Our mother pays great attention to her: she’s very finely, have a good appetite, and looks healthy. My wife’s doctor say he thinks it possible she may live these seven years. Mother takes so much notice of her money I durst not think of removing it. I’ll order and send the certificate against the time. I suppose you are got through the stock business before now.

The other side is the copy of whatever mother said on New Year’s day, and insisted on me to write.

Hull Godwin.”
