Miss Mattie Monroe
What in the world has become of of you? I have written to you time & again, & it seems imposible for one to get an answer. I haven't heard directly from you, since I was in your town. I heard that you & Hettie were going to school in Houston is it so, or not? Do you intend going back? I have been nearly crazy to see, or hear from you. When do you expect to come up? Please come soon. I have thousands to tell you about every thing
"We are abloe aspaniolia"
Be sure & write me soon. tell Hettie to write Love to all
