Letter written to George RumbleGoodrich, Michigan
I received your reply and was very glad to hear from you, hope you will write as often as you can.
Having a short time to spare I thought I would have a little chat with you on paper.
I am sorry that your wife does not enjoy good health, for good health is a good blessing.
I work very hard with my family.
There is nine of us to work after and I have very little help.
My eldest girl living is married she is 21 years old,
the next is a boy 17 years,
next a girl 15,
next a girl 13,
next a girl 11,
next a boy 7,
and a baby boy 14 months.
The eldest one died at 10 months, she would have been 23 years old and I hope to meet her in heaven with my dear Mother and Father who have been gone (Father 27 years and Mother 22 years).
So my brother and I are all that is left, he travels most of the time.
I am 42 years old and my husband 50, he is an American and came from Boston, USA, and if we live to see the 6th of June next year will be married 25 years (1875, June 6).
We are both Christians and are not ashamed to tell it out to others and I hope my dear cousin that you too are on the safe side and have accepted Christ as your Savior, there is no other way to be happy.
God has given you two dear boys and I hope you realize that you have to answer before God for their souls.
Teach them while they are young and when they are old they will not depart from it.
Write me some more about your folks and where they are living.
Have you anyone living in London Bridge Andover Hauls?
I think my mother said that she had a brother a druggist.
Now let me know all you can.
I thought that Uncle Charles spelled his name Rumbold is that not so?
He use to address his letters so.
I was his favorite when here, a spoiled girl they say.
I think I must close and get the children to bed and hope you will write soon as you can.
Trusting this will find you and yours well and happy.
With Christian Love,
I remain yours Lovingly H. E. Davis
