Noble Center Feb 10th 1883

Dear Children

we are well as usual and hope you are the same we have had a hard tome to take care of the stock this Cold weather we had such an ice storm as we had several years a go it last friday and saturday and every thing is covered with ice yet it is so slipery the cattle and sheep can scarcely move they stand around it sees as if they would freeze it has been a little plesaent for two days there has not been a Woman in the house since Mrs B was here the week before Christmas I have not seen one since 3 weeks ago yesterday I went to the write soon in haste w S A Camfield


Doctors have not been away from the house further than the barn since
we have not heard from south bend since the first of november Rosy said then she would writ about Christmas we have no letter yet how is Mr vorhees getting along how is Frank this cold weather Frank did you not get any Christmas present your ma did not tell of any so I thought you did not get any
Pet Plant is dead and I supose Bell Will was verry sick the last I heard we have been wanting to go to Burr Oak all winter but we cannot get away we will have 3 new milks cows 2 or 3 weeks and then there wil be more to do so we shall not go any where

I'm not certain who Pet Plant was. I believe Belle and Will Plant were the children of Harrison and Adeline. Then again by this time Will had a wife named Maria and they had a daughter named Belle.
