I am home for Christmas and having a wonderful time listening to my children and telling them stories. I went to church will Ellen and the family. The weather here is bitter cold.
When I arrived, I had hoped to find my brother John in town. He wasn’t here so I sent a telegraph to Charlie Ewing. I soon got word from John that he was in Mansfield, Ohio and wondered if I could come there. I only have a short time with my family and do not think I will have time for a visit.
