My Own dearest Sallie 
May God bless you all and bring you safely over the sea to the new country in S. Africa. I pray the dear children may soon be strong again and that you dear wll not suffer on the voyage. I hope Cis  will let me know the name of yr steamer. You must be weary of all the packing up but I hope you will have time to get the naphtha & powder also camphor. In a letter from Willie  yesterday he said there were 40 masons & bricklayers at work on new mill & next week he hoped to have 80 so the building is going quickly. I wish you had seen him. I had a letter from Bessie McMath  yesterday she & Arthur  are talking of California before next winter. I hope dear you will let us know how you all get on. Father  & Annie  join me in fondest love & every good wish for your happiness.
Believe me always your most loving friend
