Dear Beatrice

We received your letter this morning & are pleased to hear that you are enjoying good health. your communication has put us in a pecular situation, you must realize, that we can not know any thing about this man that you speak of & concequently our council would be for you to take time to find out something of his anticedents & what kind of a family he belongs to. it is not well to jump at conclutions in choseing a partner for life. people should take time & be well aquanted with each other before makeing a choice which is to make or mar your future happiness. of cause we would greatly prefer that you should unite your self with some good member of our church. your sisters have all married to please themselves which has caused us much regret for there is a life after this & I fear neither of our Son in laws give a passing thought to any hearafter. you say that this man is willing to join our church. that is a good recomendation if he does so for a pure motive. I don't want to be concidered unkind in my remarks for what I say to you is for your wellfare & I concider it my duty to talk plain to you on such an important matter. Proberly I have said enough on the subject at this time but I Still think it will a good thing & not be in too great a hurrey to leave the old folks.

Mother says she will send your waist & the belt through the P.Office tomorrow & she hopes you will have a good time. Mother says to try & please the trustees so that they will give you a good recommend if you should ever need one.

Walter is trying to enjoy himself while he is Home he says that he don't expect to stay long.

a you think you will be able to give us a call on Washingtons birth day.

there is going to be an Old folks day at our place tomorrow & we are invited.

Mother says do you have far to walk to school now.

Mother is sorrey to hear of Mrs. Davidsons death.
