         Minimal punctuation added by the transcribe to enhance readability. A pencilled note by Emera Thrasher at the end of the letter: "This letter was written by Ellen Mitchell over 50 years ago, her mother was my mother's sister, her father and mine brothers, which makes double cousins. This is the 25 of May 1882." This letter appears here thanks to the generosity of Emera's descendant Charles Ingrum.
