[Sherkston] Dec 20th 1883

Dear Ida

I have no time to

write a letter for I am terribly

busy. I have lots of news to tell

you when I see you. I want

a load of you to come down on

the Friday before New Years' and

if anything should happen that

you could not come down then

you get John of Al to bring

you down on the Sunday. We

will expect you now be

sure and all come down. Do

no leave [A.] Yates at home

this time. Bring A. [Illegible]

also. I am going to Essex Co

to teach for a salary of $375.00

per annuum. I have had several

offers of school with salaries

of $350.00. One in an adjoining

section, but I want to have

a change. I will be at the

other end of the lake next

year, near Detroit. I start for

home tomorrow morning. You

might send a P.Card to Falkland

and let us know if you think you can

[illegible] [cannot?] come on Friday with

and tell us what

other day you can come
