Winsboro, Wood Co. Texas
Jan 14 1884

Dear Susie
I am happy to
inform you that we have
reach the land of our journey.
We have had some very
cold weather, if winter dont
break, I am going to follow
your example, stop and make
a fire on the road side.
Just a few more days
and I will be homeward
bound. Tell my Dearest Girl,
I left my heart, warmest
love and strongest hope in
her gentle keeping. I hope she
will never betray my trust.
Allow me to sign myself,
Yours, J. H. Fox
