Letter from Jacob Bruner to Martha J. Bruner
			
than a weeks work my wages now being about $3.50 per day.  It is 
still necessary to have a sword which will cost me about $20  and 
a hat $8.  Coat $15 etc.  But there is no particular need of 
these just now and I intend to send you 75 or $100 next pay day 
if all goes well.
Did Mrs. Snook hand you nine dollars?  I paid JS 9 and she was to 
hand that amount to you.
I received your letter in which you stated that my old friend 
Richard Banks (on the creek) is dead.  I am sorry to hear it he 
was a very worthy man.  
I am sorry to hear that the girls are getting so fractious: No 
doubt they [illegible] for the sake of the Union .  A thousand 
kisses to you and the babes Good night---   Jacob Brunner
