Dear Jennie

Thanks for your good letter and kind offer. I dont need any thing now but if I do later might let you help some— but I dont expect to. Dont worry over me I have it all settled in my mind which is clear & tranquil & if any thing happens it wont hurt & I am sure under the circumstances [will ?] develop & help me. Have many good friends here and if it was an other in my place I would say nothing else can be as good for you[.] Still for all that they cant do it without a fight & I see little chance for me to loose[.]

With love from both to both of you
