My Dear Mr. Moore

Am glad you got the tenant tell him to use the books & any thing else. I am sure they are all right— The battle begins soon & I wish it was over— It doesnt look good to me, but I shall take care of myself after this I will join you on a farm. Either in the east or California which is a delightful climate[.]

Love to Jennie
