Mrs J F Culver
Dear Sister Mary
Here I am in Mr Gillys room and feeling inclined to pen you a few lines I proceed I wrote to father the day after I came here so that you have heard that I arrived all sound.
When I first came I put up at the Franklin house but when Mrs Beardsly found that I was in town she would not hear of my stoping any where else than at her house I am rooming with Gilly and boarding at the house. The rooms there are all taken. There are boarding with Mrs B. two newly married couples [Ruby?] Seymour now Mrs John White and her husband, they occupy the two front chambers. Mr and Mrs Chapman occupy the room that I used to have Mrs Charley B. has the Parlor. We are having some gay times. Lucia Stickney has a hard cold and is staying at home, Jenny is teaching in her stead. She expects to be able to go back by the first of next week.
I was out at Mr. Smith's night before last. Went Sleigh riding and stopt there
