From Manda Kidwell to Mary Kidwell Wilson

Monroe County, Kentucky

March the 28, 1891

Dear Sister:

I set myself this beautiful morning to write you a few lines to let you know how I am getting along. I have been mighty bad-off with the fever but I am a mending some.

The rest of the folks is all well as common. I hope this will find you all well. There has been a heap of sickness here. There has been lots of old settlers died since folks left here.

Well, Pop, I want you to send a order from under your and Alex's own hand to get the money that is coming to us from your part of the timber. The deed was alright but Pitcock said you would have to send us an order from under your hand before he could pay it. He said he could not pay it til you sent the order. You must send it right away.

I would love to see you all. I have been sick, but I am getting better. I was sorry to here Tom was sick, but I hope he is better. It seems like I feel so lonesome that I don't know what to do. I have seen Jim twice since you left. Am a going down there to stay a week when I get well.

So I will close for time.

From Manda Kidwell
