Johnsburgh May the 3 1837

It is with pleasure that I now attempt to write a few lines to inform you of our health which is good at present and we hope that these few lines will find you enjoying the same blessing.  We received your letter the 23 of April and were glad to hear that you were all well and well suited.  You wrote that Abiram had hired out for a year and we want to know how much he has a month and where you live and how much grain is a bushel and when the snow went off.  For there is a great deal of snow in the woods now and the things are backwards.  Yesterday was as good a sap day as we've had this year, the times are very hard.  Corn has been sold for fourteen and six a bushel and buckwheat for twelve shillings a bushel and pork for 20 dollars a barrel.  Our friends are all well except Reuben's youngest girl is very sick.  Father Galutia thinks very hard that you have not wrote to him.  He is quire sickly this spring.  Martha Galutia is married to Mr. Pelton and Mercy is married to William Whipple and Martha has moved to Fort Ann to live and Mercy has gone to live at Stocks Potters farm in Athell where Charles West lived last summer.  Lany Ross is married to John Eldridge and Susan Wilcox is married to Ambrose Roxford.  Father is well at present and we want to see you all very much, but if we never see each other in this world may we be prepared to meet in heaven where we shall meet to part no more.

Sampson and Sibel Grover

Johnsburgh may the 3 1837

It is with much pleasure that I now attempt to write a few lines to inform you of my health which is quite good at present and I hope these few lines will find you enjoying good health.  I have a bad cough which I have had ever since I had the measles last August.  and since then I've had the Chicken Pox and the Quenzecy.  and I was taken sick with the bilious fever the first day of December which confined me to my room four weeks.  and the people where I was were christian people and they did not think that I should ever recover again.  and so they wrote to my parents and they came down to see me and I had got better.  and so that day hey had arrived there I had set up three hours and I was gaining very fast.  They stayed until I was able to return home with them.  We started for home the fourth day of January and I had not been out doors but once before that. The day before we started I rode out about 30 rods and back and the next day we started for home.  My sickness cost me thirty dollars. I want to see you all very much.  give my love to timothy and Mary and Elisha and all enquiring friends. so I must close by ascribing myself you niece Maria Grover to Abiram and Rachel Galutia.
