To Mrs. Joseph A. Sweetser
The Bible must have had us in mind, when it gave that liquid Commandment. Were all it's advice so enchanting as that, we should probably heed it. Thank you for promptness, explicitness, sweetness.
Your account of the Lilies was so fresh I could almost pick them, and the hope to meet them in person, in Autumn, thro' your loving Hand, is a fragrant Future. I hope you are well as you deserve, which is a blest circumference, and give my love to each.
Aunt Libbie just looked in on us, and I go to make her a Dish of Homestead Charlotte Russe.
