January + a it was [illegible]

a valuable one I thought

thinking it would be able

to go to work in three or four

weeks but it is not able to get

out of the stable yet [illegible] wont

be for some time. But as soon

as I can get away I shall collect

and make another payment

What is the [spreadsheet] for

getting rid of dried apples now

easyer than write as I have

not been in bed for the last

six nights.
