      ELIJAH DAVIS since I commenced this letter your wife has come home & says they are well except CATHERINE. She has took cold with the mumps & is not very well, we was glad to hear that you was well. We are done planting that field over next to GEORGE SMITH's, we have got some corn in the RUFUS field big enough to work next week. We will send you something to eat by MR CHAPEL when he comes down.
