Mr. Wells - The weather is so bad I think it doubtful about my getting down to see you. I send a girl Gusty. she has a terrible disposition. I want you to cure her. do not treat her cruelly, but make her know her place.
I send a bolt of cloth for the negroes who have had no winter clothes - Please get Mrs. Wells to divide it amongst them.
I send you two barrels molasses - the negroes must do on 2 lbs meat & pint & a half molasses a week. it is about what other people do.
I shall probably leave tomorrow night Thursday, 16 Jany 62. Yours truly
H. W. Foote
I send some meat too
head & Back bones
