I am very much pleasd to receive another letter from you, 1 receivd one last evening which gave notion of Mr Mills being the bearer, To day at meeting I saw him myself and conversd with him a few minutes and he told me he was the bearer of the letter. You mentioned in your letter of being much disappointed in not receiving a line from me by Mr Akerly. I think you will excuse me when I did not know of Akerlys going untill after he had gone several days. Since Mr Akerlys return, Elijah had been at our house and staid all night and told me that his father was at Stoney Brook at fathers. He said he brought no letters from any of you which I expect disappointed me as much as you in not receiving one from me.
It is a general time of health in this country at present, John was quite sick last week but has got better. You mentioned in your letter you had give up the idea of traveling in hopes of doing something on the Island, but what business you did not inform me. Please in your next letter to let me know what business you are in.
I can inform you that my business is plenty of hard work. I
have been very healthy this spring and workd very hard, I am building a house and barn for Mr Joseph Slaughter. You must try to prevail on father to come up and make us a visit this summer. I should be very happy to see you up here but if your business is so you cant, I must content myself with receiving a line as often as you please to write, Give my respects to all our friends and accept my best wishes for your happiness, -
Yours Affectionately Seth Williamson
