Then he ask me for my hand as a truthful person and I promised him I'd Stick t ya and that ya promised t stick t me so I dont think we should Split up.

I Just wont trust anyone else. Well now here is another propersition. the fellow that owens this place said there was a gold and silver mine here clost t my house on it. the old Prospector that found it is dead and this man cant find it an he ask me if I Knew any one had a Mine dector and I told him ya had one. so he wants t know how much ya would want t come and help him locate it. so I told him I'll ask ya and let him Know. Well I'l close. Tell Francies I'v got onions in the garden big enough t eat. Will Taur said he sure would send ya some Sasfraze tea Roots when he sends the other. so Please Come back while its Prettie and lets run this thing out. As Ever your Cousin Martha Annie Sitton
