Sarah Ann Camfield, 11 Jan 1887

Noble Center Jan 11th 1887

well I suppose you are wondering why you dont get a letter all the reason is because I have not written one we are as wel as usual and I have talked about it every day but did not sit down and do it
we are having very Cold weather but I suppose you know that I suppose it is cold there
thank you for the presents you sent us I ment to have sent you something but it was so Cold I could not go to town there is nothing new to tell of only we have got 7 little pigs this cold weather they are 4 weeks old I dont know whether they will stand it through to spring or not but they are looking first rate now I have been making 6 pounds of butter


aweek but if it keep so Cold I shall not make so much any more I get 15 cts per pound for what I have to spare Father is getting out rails for fence we have about 100 rods of fence we wat to build in the spring I am afraid it will not get all done but we do what we can and that is all any one can do
we hope you all had a good time Christmas and newyear we staid at home all alone andid not see any one but each other afew goby

Taylorstales - I'm happy you're enjoying them. I love the insight they give into their lives but often life for them was a bit dull.
