now my dear what do you think of it I did    I meet your 
approbation in  accepting?  I can serve my country in that 
capacity  as well as in any other and if any of my friends turn 
up their noses never mind it I can buy them [?] their favors with 
my wages.
Tell me you are content and I do not care what the rest of the 
world may say.  
I acknowledge the receipt  of a letter from Sake.  I rec'd  a 
letter from her sent by Snook(?)
Excuse this short letter it is to warm tonite  much I intend to 
see you before the 30th of  Sept. set that down..
I must assist in writng a letter to Sake(?) & Mechs(?).  Lt. 
Richardson & I are writing this afternoon.
If  Alex Kentner(?) will give $350. dollars for our land let him 
have it.  How would you like to spend two or three months in the 
South?  No more at this time         Good bye.

Your husband,
